Royal Mencap Society kindly issued 4 invitations to an evening reception at Buckingham Palace on 7.11.17. The evening was in recognition of Mencap’s 70th Anniversary to celebrate all that has been achieved since Judy Fryd’s letter in 1946 that sparked Mencap’s creation.
We were honoured that 4 representatives from Mencap in Kirklees joined the event. This was in recognition of the difference our organisation makes on a daily basis to people with a learning disability and their families and carers.
The Countess of Wessex, Patron of Mencap, hosted the reception at Buckingham Palace.
Below is a photograph of our representatives who attended the evening reception. They were Joanne from Finance Department, Linda (Chair of Mencap in Kirklees), Ken from Community Services and Diana from Castle Hall Residential Home.
They all enjoyed the memorable occasion.
Joanne quoted “ I feel lucky and honoured to have attended this function on behalf of the team at Mencap in Kirklees. What an amazing evening it was! Will remember it forever”
