De­light in let­ter from the Queen

Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE -

A CHAR­ITY which sup­ports adults with learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties was thrilled to re­ceive a let­ter from the Queen.

It’s all thanks to Jane Naden, who is a ‘drop­per in­ner’ at Parachute Drop In cen­tre, run by Speak­ing Up Speak­ing Out Char­ity.

Jane, who is a fan of the Queen, or­gan­ised a party for the drop­per-in­ners to cel­e­brate Queen El­iz­a­beth’s 90th year.

Jane then or­gan­ised for all the mem­bers to sign a birth­day card for the queen.

Amy Tod, from Just Drop In, said: “Jane has al­ways been very fond of Queen El­iz­a­beth II and thought her 90 th birth­day in April was a big cause for cel­e­bra­tion.

“To pass on her best wishes to her Majesty, Jane bought a beau­ti­ful card that all the drop­per in­ners signed.

“Jane then posted it on be­half of all the drop­perin­ners to Buck­ing­ham Palace. What Jane was not ex­pect­ing was to re­ceive a card.

“How­ever, a let­ter marked with Buck­ing­ham Palace’s stamp dropped through the let­ter box at Parachute.

“Both staff and drop­per in­ners were des­per­ate to open the let­ter but waited for Jane as they knew how much it meant to her.

“There was a huge amount of ex­cite­ment about the let­ter and Jane, es­pe­cially, was thrilled with the re­ply.”

In­cluded in the en­ve­lope was a card from the Queen with a photo and mes­sage, and a let­ter signed by the Queen’s Lady-in-Wait­ing. Parachute drop in are now or­gan­is­ing for the cor­re­spon­dence to be framed so Jane has a lovely keep sake for her ef­forts and de­vo­tion to the Queen.
