7 February

Today (7th February 2010) is the 58th anniversary of the day Hastings 491 left for Kenya to collect the Royal Household after the death of King George VI. 

In 2012, in two years time, HM Queen Elizabeth II will celebrate 60 years on the throne – the first Diamond Jubilee since that of Queen Victoria in 1897.

We hope that our fundraising event will take place on 7th February 2012, tying in with all these historic anniversaries.  So we’d better get on with it!
