Tom Williams OBE tells of a “surprise” Royal visit for Legs4Africa.
Tom, the founder of Legs4Africa, was cycling into work when he noticed unusual activity at the charity’s ‘Legquarters”. Police dogs and officers with guns were apparently sniffing through crates of prosthetic components, which was anything but ordinary! Once Tom realised that no-one was getting arrested he remembered that Emmaus, a charity which supports people to work their way out of homelessness (see link below this post for further information), was having their 25th Anniversary Celebration and that a VIP was going to be present. Today was the day and it turned out that Queen Camilla was the VIP and would be touring the Legs4Africa premises that morning.
In what turned out to be a whirlwind of a day, Tom says, “We had the surreal opportunity to share the impactful strides we’re making here at Legs4Africa with Her Majesty and her entourage.“.
It was an impromptu chance to showcase the incredible work driven by our shared passion and commitment Tom Williams OBE – Legs4Africa Founder
