The Patron’s Lunch
On Sunday 12 June 2016 SBA The Solicitors’ Charity was honoured to attend the Patron’s Lunch. Our President, Jonathan Smithers, and friends at Law Care joined us to celebrate The Queen’s 90th birthday. It was a truly soggy start to what was said to be the UK’s largest ever street party on the Mall.
Representatives from 600 charities and organisations were there, all united in having The Queen as patron. Despite the rain, we stayed resolutely cheerful and there were some wonderful moments when (after the sun came out!) members of Team SBA were able to talk to Prince William and Kate in person.
We were very proud to take our place amongst all those organisations helping to make a difference. It was also very special to be able to share the occasion with our beneficiaries, volunteers and Trustees. Take a look at our photo gallery of some lovely memories captured at The Patron’s Lunch.
