The message of the Duchess is as the following: “The first week of June is traditionally Volunteers’ Week, when we celebrate our unsung heroes. This year in particular, we owe a great debt of thanks to all our wonderful volunteers, who have stepped forward in astonishing numbers, pulling together to support those affected by COVID-19. As the very proud President of the Royal Voluntary Service, I should like to say that you truly are the backbone of our country. To each and every volunteer – thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

In addition, The Duchess of Cornwall shared a video message via the Royal Voluntary Service ‘Virtual Village Hall’ which is provided online. In her video message, The Duchess thanked the thousands of volunteers providing support to people in need and patients in hospitals. She also thanked the hundreds of thousands of NHS Volunteer Responders who have signed up in recent weeks to support the NHS and to ease the pressure on the frontline during the corona pandemic.

Already 250,000 tasks have been performed, with 98% of requests being met within 24 hours. The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duchess of Cambridge, The Countess of Wessex and The Duchess of Gloucester joined the ranks of NHS Volunteer Responders across the country, and they all took part in ‘check in and chat’ calls with the people who are self-isolating, vulnerable or elderly.

The NHS Volunteer Responders scheme is being delivered by the Royal Voluntary Service, which keeps on performing its regular voluntary activities too. The charity’s hundreds of social clubs and groups can not get together during the pandemic time and for that reason, the ‘Virtual Village Hall’ programme was created to bring people together online.

  1. How lovely the Duchess is acknowledging the hard work of Volunteers. She looks lovely, her blouse and jacket are smart, but she looks so elegant.
