HRH The Prince of Wales Hosts Charities to Celebrate Garfield Weston Foundation’s 60th Birthday

On the 14th May 2018, The Prince of Wales kindly hosted a Reception at Buckingham Palace to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Garfield Weston Foundation. The evening was an opportunity to celebrate not only the Foundation’s anniversary, but also many of the amazing charities that we support.

We were delighted to be joined by over 300 people from charities all across the UK.  Throughout its history the Foundation has supported a wide range of charities across the furthest reaches of the country; from small and vital community organisations to large national institutions; so it was particularly exciting to see this rich variety reflected in the wonderful surroundings of the Ballroom of Buckingham Palace. The event was buzzing with great conversations, introductions, idea sharing and the forging of new connections.

Philippa Charles, the Director, said; “The Weston Family made an incredible gift to the nation in creating the Foundation so it was especially fitting that this was celebrated at the 60 year milestone and just as it exceeds £1billion in donations. We would like to thank His Royal Highness for his kind welcome in hosting a lovely event that will be remembered by us all”.
