Carer's Week 11th - 17th June 

Supporting carers to be Healthy and Connected

We Royally Care

Young Carer and Mum attend the Royal Wedding

What an amazing adventure for Harry and his mum, April.  Thanks to the support and invitation from Scarborough Rotary Club and the North Yorkshire Lord Lieutenant, Harry and April went to the wedding of the year!
The whole weekend was over too fast but both Harry and Mum had a fantastic time travelling down and across London on the busiest weekend of the year to see the most memorable moment in recent history.
Battling crowds and traffic they arrived at Windsor Castle very early on the morning of the wedding to secure a great vantage point. They watched and celebrated the whole thing in the private grounds of the Castle, with a perfect view of those arriving to help Harry and Megan celebrate their big day.
Harry felt proud to wear his Number One, Sea Cadet’s uniform and Mum felt very special dressing-up for the occasion. It proved to be a very long and busy day but Mum commented ‘it was wonderful to be a part of history in the making; it has been an honour to be asked, thank you to the Rotary Club for giving us this opportunity’.
Harry and Mum secured a place at the front of the proceedings,  having an excellent view of the celebrities arriving and the royals in their cars.  They waved at the Royal carriage as Megan and Harry sailed close by them.  The day included an interview with ITV (Harry was very excited to be on telly!) and a walk through the church where everything happened. April commented ‘The flowers smelt as beautiful as they looked’.
We are really thankful to all that helped make this happen.
