Princess Anne visited Borough High Street on Thursday to celebrate the recent refurbishment of the headquarters of the British Association and College of Occupational Therapists.
The Princess Royal has been patron of the organisation for over 20 years and is a strong advocate of occupational therapy and the support it provides for people managing disability, injury, ageing and a range of physical, mental and social difficulties.
The Princess Royal was greeted by members, staff and VIP delegates and unveiled a plaque to mark a recent refurbishment of the building.
Her visit included a tour of the premises including its new library, housing the UK's largest independent collection of OT publications, computer suite and meeting rooms.
"We are delighted and honoured to have welcomed the Princess to our headquarters," says Julia Scott, chief executive of the British Association and College of Occupational Therapists.
"The Princess Royal has been a fantastic ambassador for our profession and for over 20 years and has generously given her time to meet people who have had their lives changed by occupational therapy; her visits are always deeply appreciated."
