Northumbrian Leaders attend Garden Party with Her Majesty The Queen
The event, organised by the Duchess of Northumberland and Northumberland County Council, recognised the efforts of carers and volunteers – including several of the B-PSA’s scout groups.
The Duchess said: "We've tried our hardest to make sure that they're going to have a day to remember. It's about saying thank you to carers and volunteers. I never imagined that we would be fortunate enough to have the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh coming.”
"That is an extra pressure but to be honest, to me it's about the people on the ground, it's about seeing all those people together and being able to say thank you and hopefully for them to be thrilled that they've actually been recognised out there."
