Kathy and her husband Steve were invited to The Queen’s Garden Party at Buckingham Palace in May, to reward and recognise them for their life-long commitment to caring for vulnerable children.

Kathy and Steve were first invited to The Queen’s Garden Party in 2020, which was cancelled due to the pandemic, but received a call earlier this year to invite them to this year’s event, on the year of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Kathy said: “It was an absolutely fabulous day! We were very lucky as it was beautiful weather, the week before they had torrential rain. The gardens at Buckingham Palace were huge, and not at all what I was expecting, with a very natural landscape and a lake. There was a big afternoon tea tent with lovely sandwiches, lots of cakes, scones, and tarts. There was a band playing as you went in, and another by the Royal Tent.
