Ron Toasting to Winston Churchill by The National Lottery Community Fund

Last week Ron found himself at the Cabinet War Rooms in London as a special guest at the National Lottery’s 15th Anniversary celebrations. As Ron toured the venue, he came across a familiar face.

“What few people, if any, at the reception would have known is that I have a particular affinity with Winston Churchill as he was the Hon. Colonel of my old regiment, the 4th QOH and that I had attended a dinner at which he was present in late 1945.”

I would not have missed the whole experience for anything. A big thank-you to the Big Lottery Fund for making the trip possible.”
