Prime Minister Theresa May joined trustees and supporters of the Braywick Charitable Trust on Friday to celebrate the group’s 20th anniversary.
After jetting off to France and Germany to meet with some of Europe’s major political figures, the Maidenhead MP found time to attend the event at Braywick Heath Nurseries, in Braywick Road.
For the last 20 years the Trust has been working in association with Braywick Heath Nurseries to provide disabled people in the town with employment, training and work experience.
The trust was set up in 1996, and the nurseries were officially opened in 1997.
During the celebrations, Mrs May listened to a presentation which outlined the Trust’s latest projects.
She also spoke to thank the group for its hard work.
Robin Pemberton, chairman of trustees at the Braywick Charitable Trust, said: “With all the concerns that the country is facing, for her to find time to come and join our celebrations just shows how much she cares.
“She was with us when we opened the Nurseries back in 1997 and she’s been our friend all the way along.”
The Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead Cllr Sayonara Luxton also attended the event.
