Lord Sterling of Plaistow is well known for his personal involvement in the creation of the luxurious Royal barge Gloriana that sailed at the head of the Royal Flotilla during Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee celebrations. How many of us realise that Lord Sterling has been the leading light for all three of Queen Elizabeth's Jubilee celebrations? Amongst so many great achievements Lord Sterling is the founder member of the Mobility Charity which has provided over 3 million cars for the disabled community.

Wheathills recently had the great pleasure and privelege to create a Memory Box to celebrate his illustrious career and unique achievements. The marquetry design symbolises family values, achievements and Royal appreciation.

"I have had the pleasure of seeing many beautiful objects in my time but the creativeness of your team is not only very special but obviously, from my personal point of view, is giving me great pleasure." - Jeffrey Sterling
