BARRY supporters of a cancer charity were treated like royalty when they met with its patron at Buckingham Palace to celebrate its 70th birthday.

Volunteers from the Barry Friends of Tenovus group met with HRH The Princess Royal and Tenovus patron, and fellow patron and Gavin & Stacey star Rob Brydon at a royal reception, last month.

Princess Anne greeted guests in the Picture Gallery and Mary Thomas, a member of the Barry Friends of Tenovus group and an active fundraiser and volunteer for over 46 years, presented the princess with a posy.

Tenovus celebrates its 70th birthday throughout the year.
