This is a special thanks to John Thorogood who has worked tirelessly to build spirit and momentum with the fantastic team we have at The Knighton Men's Shed.
He was invited to attend the House of Lords for a ceremony, hosted by Baroness Tanni Grey-Thomson to celebrate being Shortlisted for the UKMSA Shed of the Year 2023 award! Simon Gill accompanied.
Here's John's note:
