A Croxley Green resident took part in the annual Lord Mayor’s Show on behalf of Help for Heroes last month.
Laura Murphy is a Help for Heroes volunteer team leader for Hertfordshire and was “honoured and privileged” to walk alongside veterans and volunteers.
The Lord Mayor’s Show is 804 years old and has been a fixture of London life for centuries, from its origins as a way to make the city behave through the medieval carnival and imperial spectacle to become the world’s greatest unrehearsed civic procession and its longest-running TV show.
A spokesperson for the Lord Mayor’s Show said: “Thank you all for coming to the show, for taking part, for helping it to move smoothly and keeping it safe.
“It takes about 7000 people to make a Lord Mayor’s Show so there’s no way we can thank you all properly, but you know you did it.”
Laura wrote on Facebook: “I had a busy day, leaving Croxley at 6.30am to go to central London to take part in the Lord Mayor’s Show on behalf of Help for Heroes, but it was an absolute honour and privilege to walk alongside veterans and volunteers. We even got on the TV.
“I am the Volunteer Team Leader for Help for Heroes in Hertfordshire and we are always looking for more volunteers and fundraisers to help our wounded, injured, and sick veterans. Please get in touch if you want more information about the charity and how you can help.
The 2019 Lord Mayor’s Show is available to watch on iPlayer now.
