Lauraine Montgomery, Chair of Autism Bedfordshire and Peter Scott, Trustee and founding member attended a Garden Party at Buckingham Palace at the end of May, hosted by Charles, Prince of Wales, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall and Anne, the Princess Royal who were representing the Queen. The garden parties are important events in the royal calendar as those who have served their country or communities are recognised. We are proud and grateful to Lainey, Peter and all our dedicated trustees (Jeff Bulled, Philip Delafield, Pam Wrest and Pat Guy) for their leadership, support and steer. We will treasure this moment of them receiving the recognition they deserve.
Autism Bedfordshire’s trustees recently took part in a great charity quiz night organised by Bedford based construction company SDC. The quiz night, held at Bedford Blues Rugby Club was in support of Autism Bedfordshire and another local charity, Tibbs Dementia Foundation and at the end of the evening our trustees proudly received a cheque for £5,000. This donation helped us host our special Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service presentation event in October as the company had kindly made a commitment last year to raise funds for us.
The event is just one of 50 being held to celebrate 50 years of business for SDC which includes fun runs and a family fun day. We are delighted that SDC chose to support us and include us in their celebrations.
