THE lucky Examiner reader who won the competition to have afternoon tea with the Queen was born on the same day as the monarch.
And 81-year-old Evelyn Dawson has chosen the friend who nominated her to go along to the special VIP marquee in St George's Square tomorrow afternoon.
That person is Jacquie Roeder, who founded the Laura Crane Trust in memory of her daughter, who died in 1996 aged just 17 from a complex mix of cancers.
The trust has so far raised £750,000, which pays for research into cancers affecting 13 to 25-year-olds and provides facilities to make hospital life easier for young cancer sufferers.
The two met while dog walking in Rastrick, near where Mrs Dawson lives.
Mrs Dawson missed out on an invite down to the Queen's 80th birthday celebrations when she celebrated with women born on the same day.
She applied, but was not chosen.
But her husband, James, had a special photo framed, with one half showing the Queen and the other his wife - so at least they did get together on the living room wall!
Mrs Dawson, like Mrs Roeder, has also suffered the loss of a child. Her daughter, Anne, died in a road accident in the early 1960s when she was just eight.
Recently she has had to nurse James, 87, who is not well enough to go with her to St George's Square.
Mr and Mrs Dawson have a son, Gerry, and used to run Dawson's Top Shop, a sweet shop on New Hey Road in Rastrick.
Mrs Dawson has also worked at Ryan's newsagents on High Street in Huddersfield town centre and in the Cancer Research shop.
She said: "I was so disappointed at missing out on the chance to meet the Queen when she was 80, so this is a dream come true."
Almost 90 people were nominated in the Examiner competition and it was hard for the judges to select a winner.
