Whitefield community champion meets the King

Community Champion, Rochelle Gardner B.E.M. has been busy as always over the last few months including, meeting The King at her company Head Office in Bradford, and organising a Chanukah lighting event in store with The Mayor of Bury attending.
Rochelle said, “It was a great privilege to meet with the King recently, after receiving my B.E.M. earlier in 2022. He had a few words of encouragement and mentioned how important our community work was.”
