A West Norfolk woman met the Duchess of Cornwall as an international equine charity celebrated its 80th anniversary.

Fiona Bolingbrooke-Kent, from West Acre, was among a small group of supporters who were introduced to the Duchess at The Brooke celebratory photographic exhibition in London on Tuesday.

The Brooke helps over a million working horses, donkeys and mules in developing countries after growing from a specialist equine hospital founded in Cairo by Englishwoman Dorothy Brooke in 1934.

Mrs Bolingbroke-Kent has been supporting the charity for more than 30 years and has helped to raise £10,000 after setting up a volunteer group in 2001.

She said: “I was so pleased to be invited to this event. The photos were really inspiring and meeting The Duchess made it all the more special. The Brooke has done such great work in the last 80 years helping horses, donkeys and mules, and I’m proud to be a part of it.”
