The Queen visits the new Meadows Community Centre in Cambridge
As President of the Royal Voluntary Service, The Queen has visited the newly opened Meadows Community Centre in Cambridge.
The new Meadows Community Centre, just outside of Cambridge, has eight public-use rooms and runs a variety of classes ranging from dance, exercise and performing arts to painting and quilting.
On a tour of the facilities, The Queen saw the dance studio and café run by Royal Voluntary Service volunteers.
The Royal Voluntary Service (RVS) is one of Britain’s largest volunteering charities with volunteers supporting the NHS and thousands of vulnerable people in the community. Her Majesty has been President of the RVS since 2012.
The charity works in local communities running companionship, lunch and social clubs, dementia services, home from hospital services, First Time for Everything events, and patient transport.
During the visit, Her Majesty watched a ‘Find Your Feet’ beginners dance class hosted by Royal Voluntary Service supporters, Johannes Radebe and Tasha Ghouri.
