Our team member Rowsonara Begum, received an invitation to attend Her Majesty the Queen's Royal Garden Party at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday 25 May 2022. This is in recognition of her services via Saffron Indian Takeaway to the local community and other voluntary work during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Rowsonara commented, "the palace gardens was so beautiful and it was nice to talk to inspiring people from different walks of life and hear about their journeys. The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton and Prince Williams attended and talked to the crowd.
The food was lovely, from Indian Summer Wrap, traditional scone with blackcurrant jam and clotted cream to smoke salmon and lemon cream cheese mini bagel".
Despite the rainy weather, Rowsonara said that everyone was in high spirits. She further commented "this was a once in a lifetime experience especially as I had the opportunity of attending during the Platinum Jubilee year. I never thought I'd experience something like this in my life. It is such a privilege and honour to receive this and I thank my team and family at Saffron for their hard work and dedication to help the serve the community in Salisbury during the COVID-19 pandemic and the NHS staff".
