A right royal invitation
Friday, October 23rd, 2015 | Posted in Blog
On Sunday 12th June 2016 The Mall will be home to a truly magnificent event, The Patron’s Lunch; a significant National and Commonwealth event to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s patronage of over 600 charities, of which the Fashion & Textile Children’s Trust (FTCT) is one. Similar to the the National Service of Thanksgiving which FTCT attended, to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee weekend (June 2012), we are honoured to have been invited to be part of this special day.
Hosted on the occasion of her 90th birthday, the event will provide a very special opportunity for all organisations who have been touched by Her Majesty The Queen, to publicly thank her and to be proud of the work and service that their own charity or organisation has provided to this nation or those nations across the Commonwealth.
Her Majesty The Queen will be joined by the Duke of Edinburgh and other members of the Royal Family to celebrate the occasion. Their Royal Highnesses, The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry will reside as Joint-Presidents of The Patron’s Lunch; honouring the dedication shown by Her Majesty to so many charities and organisations.
The invited guests will enjoy a hamper-style lunch at tables positioned along the full length of The Mall, with entertainment and Union flags a plenty.
The day itself promises to deliver an electric festival-themed atmosphere that can be enjoyed not only by the charities and their guests on The Mall, but also by the general public who will be able to soak up the festivities at large screens situated in the Royal Parks, Green Park and St James’s Park.
It is an honour to have the support of Her Majesty The Queen as our patron and we really look forward to celebrating with our fellow patron charities on this special day.
