PARTY AT THE PALACE (Sep 13 issue)

 

We can sometimes find ourselves in unusual situations and unexpected places thanks to comping - for many of us, this is one of the great joys of our fantastic hobby - but for two Compers News members that meant going straight to the top!  Both Chris Read and Anne Lee wrote to tell us that they’d won an invitation to the Coronation Festival at Buckingham Palace earlier this summer, courtesy of Waitrose and GSK. And what a day it turned out to be!

“Katherine Jenkins, Russell Watson, and all the other celebs were in fine voice and a truly wonderful and unforgettable time was had by all”, Anne told us.

The palace obviously wasn't posh enough for Chris though, as shortly afterwards she found herself at Henley Royal Regatta thanks to Lavazza coffee.  "We saw the Beach Boys in concert, it was a magical evening and I loved it”, said Chris.
 
To prove Compers News members are a sociable bunch, Anne and Chris even managed to meet at Buckingham Palace - with their favourite comping magazine completing the picture, of course!
