St Albans tailor Geoffrey Golding met with the Countess of Wessex at a special event celebrating the opening of a new dyslexia centre.
Her Royal Highness was attending the opening of the new Dyslexia Action Learning Centre in Egham, Surrey, during Dyslexia Awareness Week, which was last week.
The charity, which supports children and adults with dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties, has been supported for many years by G.D Golding (Tailors) Ltd from St Albans. Geoffrey Golding suffered greatly with dyslexia when he was a child.
Her Royal Highness thanked Mr Golding for his support and contribution to the charity.
Last year Mr Golding celebrated reaching 50 years in business, and held a fundraising event at Sopwell House, St Albans, attended by His Royal Highness The Duke of York.
