Talking about the Service the Lord Lieutenant said “It was very moving to attend the annual service of The Road Victims Trust and to hear from those families who have lost loved ones in road traffic incidents. They so much value the support of the RVT volunteers and their kindness and expertise in helping families to find a way to move forward. My thanks to them and also to our emergency services who act with such sensitivity and professionalism.”
