Friends and supporters of the charity, both old and new, attended the dinner which took place at the Odney Club, in Cookham.

Distinguished guests included the Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead, Cllr Richard Kellaway, and Maidenhead MP, Theresa May, who praised the charity for its important work.

Reverend Peter Hudson, who set up People to Places 25 years ago, also attended and was made a founder patron of the charity.

People to Places provides specialist accessible transport for people with disabilities and mobility issues.

During the past 25 years the charity has carried out more than 900,000 journeys to pick up passengers and on average moves about 177 people per day, including weekends and bank holidays.

General manager at People to Places, Peter Haley, said: "It was fantastic really, we had a really good turnout, we had a very successful raffle and some really good speeches.

"It illustrates the huge support we have had from the community across all sectors and that support is as strong today as it was 25 years ago.

"Although it is 25 years and looking back, there was an awful lot of looking forward as well."
