SOS Bus @ Afternoon Tea With The Queen

On The-Queens-Award-for-Voluntary-Service-LogoThursday 6th June 2013 John and Carole Bastin, Marilyn Kerrigan and Ron Wright attended the Queens Garden Party at Buckingham Palace to celebrate winning the Queens Award for volunteering. Most of those in attendance had been nominated for the award and guests came from all over the United Kingdom

The Team were there on behalf of the SOS BUS Project and had a great day. It was great to be in the presence of the Queen and the Duke and enjoyable to take tea with them and the rest of those invited.

It was also great to be allowed to walk round the grounds of the palace and see such beauty also to find that you were still in the centre of London.

This is a day that the four of us will never forget and will stay with us for a long time.

-Ron Wright
