Our Royal Patron meets our young refugee group

Updated: Apr 26

Our Royal Patron, HRH The Duke of Gloucester, visited our Wanstead Grotto site where he met our young refugee group during phase one of the restoration works. The visitors were delighted to meet The Duke and Honduran refugee Fernando said of the trip:

"When you are moving to another country, you have to know its history. It feels good, because we are socialising and talking. But, I would like more young people like me to know these things. And now I am sharing this information, I'm sharing these places." - Fernando Cano, 18
