Rebecca and Ryan Hunter
A medical aesthetics practitioner from Littleborough and her husband have received a prestigious invitation to the Queen’s annual garden party for charitable work carried out during lockdown.
Qualified nurse Rebecca Hunter and husband Ryan delivered food parcels to vulnerable adults and children throughout the Rochdale borough for the Rochdale Connections Trust charity.
The couple also organised more volunteers and collected donations whilst donating resources themselves.
The Hunters were put forward by Rochdale Connections Trust to the Lord Lieutenant of Greater Manchester to be selected to attend the Buckingham Palace garden party on 18 May as representation and a “thank you” for their hard work.
Rebecca said: "We're thrilled and extremely humbled to have received the invitation; thank you to Rochdale Connections Trust for nominating us. We hope it'll be a really great day to remember and are really looking forward to it."
Traditionally, Her Majesty hosts three Garden Parties at Buckingham Palace, and one at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Scotland, with the events having become a way of recognising and rewarding community efforts.
Entry is by invitation only and candidates have to be nominated by a network of community leaders.
