A Datrmoor man who lost his leg in a serious farm accident is to lunch with the Queen it has been confirmed.
Nicholas Vincent who suffered the life-changing farming accident 8 years ago has been invited to an event for people representing charities from across the country.
Mr Vincent will represent the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RABI), who he has relentlessly promoted following their support after his accident.
"Eight years ago I lost half my leg to a combine harvester," the farmer told press.
"When I got back from the hospital my wife and I were trying to work out what we'd do. I tried to work on crutches for a bit but I kept falling over. That's when the charity stepped in with lots of ideas."
RABI helped the determined farmer to employ someone to feed his cows and gave him an all-terrain John Deer Gator to help make his life easier.
"'I'm quite honoured to be invited to such a memorable occasion which will never happen again. It should be an extremely good day," the accident victim added.
