Clarence House Reception

On 12 February 2014 The Prince of Wales, Patron, the Actors’ Benevolent Fund, and The Duchess of Cornwall gave an evening Reception at Clarence House.

The ABF very much appreciates not only Their Royal Highnesses’ kindness and generosity in hosting this Reception but also their great interest in the work of the Fund.

This Reception was a very happy and memorable occasion. A guest wrote afterwards:

'Penelope Keith, President of the Fund, introduced me to The Prince of Wales and Milton Johns to The Duchess. It really was a lovely evening, and what struck me most was just how vital the Fund is and how warmly those it has helped speak of it'.
