The Duke of Gloucester will be in Burton on Tuesday, July 25. He will be visiting two of Burton’s emergency services centres, at Queen’s Hospital and the community fire station.
The duke will be visiting Queen’s Hospital, in Belvedere Road, to unveil a plaque dedicated to those who have donated their organs to help save the lives of others, commissioned by the Organ Donation Committee.
The plaque is in a memorial garden which acts as a feature which families can visit to remember those who give their organs so others can live.
He will then be visiting and officially opening the new Burton Community Fire Station. The duke will be given a full tour of the new facilities at the centre and meet with firefighters and other members of the community.
Guests will include Staffordshire Lord-Lieutenant Ian Dudson, Staffordshire High Sheriff Humphrey Scott-Moncrieff, Mayor of East Staffordshire Simon Gaskin, borough councillors, firefighters and representatives from businesses and community groups from the surrounding area.
