The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge participated in the national volunteering effort and are ‘pleased to share’ a new photo on 7 June 2020.
William and Kate, with their children, visited the Sandringham Estate in April 2020, where they packed and delivered food parcels to isolated pensioners in the local area during the coronavirus pandemic.
During Volunteers’ Week The Duke and Duchess also spoke to volunteers by video and passed on their thanks for the support they provide to their communities.
The volunteers are from Conscious Youth, based in Kirklees, West Yorkshire, and Machynlleth Community Corona Response in Powys, Wales—two organisations which rely on volunteer networks to help run and support their services.
The Duke has been volunteering for Shout85258, the United Kingdom’s first 24/7 crisis text line, launched in May 2019 by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
The Duke is one of over 2000 Crisis Volunteers who are trained to support anyone, anytime, whatever their crisis may be. Last month, The Duke and Duchess marked the service’s first anniversary by speaking to five Shout volunteers via video call.
According to royal commentator Dickie Arbiter, Prince William has also been volunteering anonymously with the Give Us A Shout helpline during lockdown.
