A care trust is calling on people to nominate a special lady to be transformed into a Queen for the day as it celebrates Her Majesty’s 90th birthday.

The Evergreen Care Trust is holding a special tea dance for more than 100 of its members on June 11 in honour of the Queen’s 90th birthday and to celebrate, the trust is looking for a local lady to be their very own Queen for the day.

The Borderville Centre will host the Queen and tea dance guests as they are entertained by local artists playing and singing many of the favourites from a bygone era.

A delicious afternoon tea will be served and attendees will have the opportunity to have a dance, reminisce and meet new friends.

The lucky winner will receive more than £400 worth of treats fit for a Queen, including:

lChauffeur driven Rolls Royce provided by Hugh Illingsworth from Classic Rolls and Bentley Hire to the event.
