MEMBERS of Wiltshire charities had the honour to meet Queen Camilla ahead of a music concert at Salisbury Cathedral.

Her Majesty visited the cathedral to watch 'A Unique Concert for Wiltshire', a event raising money for local charities the Wiltshire Bobby Van Trust, Wiltshire Air Ambulance, and Community First - Youth Action Wiltshire.

Select members involved in the charities were given the opportunity to speak with The Queen, who is a long-term supporter and patron, when she arrived at the cathedral.

Maria Smith, Ben Abbott and Matt Metcalf, from Wiltshire Air Ambulance, were the first in line to speak with Her Majesty.

Ahead of the royal chat, Dr Smith, who joined Wiltshire Air Ambulance in 2017, said: "I'm quite excited and I'm looking forward to it."

Next, Her Majesty spoke with Adam Kirkman, 18, and Brooke Custy, 15, who help young people settle in at Youth Action Wiltshire and act as buddies for children who are struggling.

Adam said he got involved with the group two years ago to "give something back" and "get that warm feeling that I have helped someone out".

Brooke said she was a young carer and was very shy when she joined a few months ago but the group has helped build her confidence.

"I'm looking forward to the concert and hearing some top quality classical music. It's lovely for Her Majesty to be here," Will added.
