At present the fees payable by ex-service guests can be kept lower than cost thanks to the donations and sponsorship received from several major service charities and we are delighted to acknowledge the support of:

ABF The Soldiers' Charity (was known as Army Benevolent Fund)
Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund
Seafarers UK (was known as King George's Fund for Sailors)

As yet we receive no support for our ex-emergency service guests and until we do their fees are charged at cost. Perhaps in the future....?  

Kitchener’s is always looking for more volunteers and if you can offer your time to support us we would be very pleased to hear from you. The management committee meets one evening per month and there is quite a mix of members offering many different skills.

If you would like to offer financial support please contact the manager who would be happy to let you know of any specific project currently in hand.

Welcome to the ex-Emergency Services...

We are delighted to welcome ex-members of the emergency services to the facilities offered by the Lord Kitchener Memorial Holiday Centre.

Until recently the Centre, at 10 Kirkley Cliff, Lowestoft, was governed by a Charity Commission trust deed permitting them to offer holiday accommodation to ex-merchant and ex-armed forces personnel and their spouses.

The trustees are delighted to announce that the terms of this deed have now been expanded to include ex-emergency service personnel. We look forward to welcoming retired police, fire service. ambulance and other emergency service personnel from all parts of the United Kingdom to the Centre in time for our 100th anniversary year in 2019.

For the background to this change see the latest section of our history.


Please click the image below to view a copy of our 2019 brochure  incorporating all our recent changes. Notable amongst them is an electric car charging point, mini fridges and televisions in the rooms and ex-emergency service personnel and their partners are now eligible to stay.
