Kate Middleton ‘humbled’ by children’s hospice
2:58pm Thursday 24th October 2013 in News
The Duchess of Cambridge has described helping a local children’s charity as “inspiring and humbling”.
She has written to the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices, which looks after sick children across north Essex, to thank staff, volunteers and supporters for their work.
She wrote: “In my first year as patron of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices I have felt truly honoured to be a part of this organisation.
“Witnessing their transformational work and meeting those whose lives are changed by EACH has been inspiring and humbling in equal measure.
“Hundreds of families depend on the services EACH provides, so it is wonderful and encouraging to know that in the last year they offered even more care to even more families than ever before.”
The letter was published in the charity’s annual report.
Chief executive Graham Butland said: “We’re delighted she has taken the opportunity to reflect upon her involvement with EACH over the past year.
“Staff, volunteers and supporters feel incredibly proud to have been celebrated and thanked in the letter and this is testament to their continued hard work and generosity.”
The duchess’s son Prince George was christened yesterday (Wednesday) at St James Palace.
