Tea with the Queen!
On 25th June, our CEO, Caron Boulghassoul attended an event organised by Near Neighbours at Buckingham Palace, which was hosted by the Queen herself. The reception was for faith leaders and people who have contributed to community cohesion by bringing together different faiths and nationalities. Near Neighbours is a funding provider which provide small grants to encourage community groups to undertake activities designed to bring people together. NAT is currently running a Near Neighbours funded project to carry out volunteer maintenance work on our houses! After meeting Her Majesty Caron said "It was a once in a lifetime opportunity and one I will never forget. The day was fantastic whilst surreal, and also a great chance to network with other brilliant organisations committed to bringing communities together."
