Buckingham Palace has put the crowning glory on Terry Keen’s 1,500-mile cycle journey earlier this year – with a special thank you card from the Queen and a personal note from her lady-in-waiting.

The very special letter arrived at Terry’s Willow Glade home on Friday, and Terry said he was delighted to receive it.

“It’s a real pleasure to get this card,” said Terry, “It’s also a huge thank you to everybody at Anchor – the staff, residents and friends - many of whom I met along the way.”

To mark the Queen's 90th birthday earlier this year, Terry embarked on a 1,500-mile cycle ride, visiting 90 Anchor locations across the country, collecting signatures in a very special birthday card.

The epic journey took 8 weeks and Terry documented the things he saw, the challenges he faced and the people he met along the way in a fascinating weekly blog.
