Prior to the National Care Accolades Ludlow MP Philip Dunne invited Hendra staff to a personal tour and refreshments at the Palace of Westminster.

Owner Vince Burmingham said that Philip has taken an interest in events at Hendra for many years and is a regular visitor to the home.

It was especially kind of him to make the time as like all Members of both Houses are extremely busy with issues relating to Brexit.

For Judy Yapp who has been a carer at the home for almost 20 years it was a first visit to Westminster, and said it was a truly memorable occasion to observe first-hand the workings of both houses.
