Rosalyn Wilmott and Jill Davies have been invited to attend the celebrations after being recognised for their care, commitment and long service at Llanhennock Lodge, a residential home for disabled people in Newport.

They are thrilled to be travelling to London for the ‘Patron’s Lunch’ on Sunday 12 June.

Ros has worked at Llanhennock Lodge for 51 years. She started as a cleaner aged 19, then worked as a kitchen assistant before becoming a carer.

Jill has worked at the care home since 1982 as a care assistant.

Both staff members are valued for going above and beyond their roles, and for having empathy, passion and respect in their day-to-day work.

Ros and Jill will be among 12 of the charity’s residents, supporters and dedicated staff to attend the spectacular event to celebrate The Queen’s patronage of hundreds of charities and organisations on her official birthday.

The Mall outside of Buckingham Palace will be transformed into a giant street party, with a hamper lunch and parade entertainment for guests.

The lunch will be attended by 10,000 people from 600 organisations of which The Queen is patron.

The Queen has played an influential role in Leonard Cheshire Disability since becoming the charity’s patron in 1980.
