When travelling to a prolific event you want to feel like royalty, especially if it is the Queen herself you are visiting! For Mayor of Dartford, Avtar Sandhu MBE, this is exactly what his May 12th consisted of, having been invited to attend the Queen’s Garden Party at Buckingham Palace. From a young age, Avtar has been an admirer of the Rolls Royce collection with the Phantom being his preferred vehicle from the British carmakers. Complete with the integral umbrella, cocktail cabinet and television, the silver Rolls Royce Phantom owned by the Mayor’s family in Birmingham was the perfect mode of transport to visit Buckingham Palace.
In addition to the Mayor and Mayoress of Dartford, the attendees ranged from all walks of life as well as the Royals themselves.
The Mayor of Dartford has raised over £40,000 for his 31 different charities, groups and organisations through a range of fundraisers including a 12,000 foot skydive, clay pigeon shooting and local fashion shows. His chosen charities, groups and organisations range from local scout groups and disability charities to Cancer Research UK and the British Heart Foundation.As a result of his strong involvement with charitable causes the Mayor was treated to a trip in a Rolls Royce by his family member, feeling like royalty himself. With the car brand arguably made famous by our monarchy his vehicle choice was somewhat fitting.
This is not however the first time the Mayor of Dartford has visited Buckingham Palace as in 2009 he was awarded an MBE for his outstanding contribution to the local community. You can sense the excitement was still within him as he said ‘My wife and I consider ourselves to be privileged in having received this invitation.’
