THE chief executive of a Huddersfield charity will be rubbing shoulders with royalty after receiving an invite to the Queen’s last official engagement for her Diamond Jubilee celebration.
The Hollybank Trust’s chief executive Pam King, will be attending the Livery Companies of the City of London’s luncheon for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, at Westminster Palace on Tuesday.
As well as the Queen and Prince Phillip, five other members of the Royal family will be attending including the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
Pam, who heads up the Mirfield-based charity, which caters for children and adults with profound learning difficulties, will be one of eight guests of the Clothworkers’ Company, which has made donations to the Hollybank Trust from its own charitable foundation.
Pam said: “I am greatly honoured to be invited to such an auspicious occasion.
“It’s a testament to the Hollybank Trust’s reputation as a centre of excellence to be included in such a gathering and I am very grateful to John Stoddart-Scott, the Master of the Clothworkers Foundation, for inviting me.
“I am sure it will be a day to remember – but I will also be thinking of the parties going on in our homes on that day”.
