“you can’t have your cake and eat it”

I will no longer continue with this blog.

I’m afraid it’s my final decision. It took me a long time to come to this place and accept this fact, but here it is.

If you want to tackle issues like women’s empowerment, equality and support system for those who are being ignored, then be inclusive to everyone.

You do not cut the wings of the one person who supported you without any hidden motives, with utmost respect, and who did a Diamond Challenge as THE ONLY royal blogger and received a Diamond Pin to support causes close to your heart.

I wanted to thank all my readers, who’ve been with me for all this time and read and supported me in this task. Which, as you know, was at times very difficult. I did my best for more than 5 years but my pink glasses has been lost and I cannot find them no more.

Thank you to THE ONE person who fully grasped what I was trying to do and achieve and supported me in this task, for as long as could…

But, all good things come to an end.

If you don’t want to part ways with me, my style of writing and be a bit closer to my inner world, do check my LP Blog, dedicated to an artist I’ve been admiring for a long time. This admiration lead to better understanding of who I am and what I want to do with my life and free time that I’ve been so generously giving away.

I’ve closed all my royal social media even though they were close to 10.000…

For now this blog will stay online, but I’m going to close it at some point as well.

Daniel Baxter who is a play designer at Proludic UK and worked closely with the children, turning their ideas into a reality, said:

After press release: Since the beginning of the ‘Arab Spring’, Christians have been facing attacks and threats and this has resulted in mass displacement within the communities. This is the time that Middle Eastern Christians, especially in the Levant, must actively participate in the healing of the community in their region and have a better future.

Lead organiser of the event, Coralie Green said: “The dinner was an excellent way to mark the success of the past 21 years of the Trust and raise funds for our exciting future plans.”   
   
To mark the on-going relationship the Trust has with schools in Helford and the surrounding area, Constantine Primary School made 18 boats for the occasion which were displayed on diners’ tables in  the Fishmongers’ Hall.

Guests took part in an auction to bid for unique and exciting prizes kindly donated by prestigious local and national businesses. HRCST Co-Chair, Charles Richardson said, “we were thrilled with the outcome of the evening, which raised just under £100,000 for our future activities.
The funds raised will go towards the Trust’s plans to expand its operations on the Helford River and open a National Centre for Water sports Excellence catering for children with special educational needs and disabilities at Trevassack Lake.  
Helford River Children’s Sailing Trust (HRCST) was founded by the late John Green in 1997. His vision was that all local children should have the opportunity, without charge, to learn to sail single-handed, believing that there was no better way of developing a child’s self-esteem, confidence and independence.

Over the last 21 years, HRCST has taught thousands of children to sail, kayak and row on Helford River. In 2017 the charity worked with over 650 children from 23 Primary Schools and 3 Special Needs Schools on its fleet of 80 small boats.

Background

Since 1971, the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) has been held every two years, at locations throughout the Commonwealth. With the exception of Sri Lanka in 2013, the Queen has been present at every CHOGM meeting since 1973 to witness the tremendous change and progress the Commonwealth has made. This year will be fifth time the Prince of Wales has attended CHOGM, in support of the Queen.

The Queen was 26 years old when she became Head of the Commonwealth in 1952. This is an important symbolic and unifying role. As Head, Her Majesty personally reinforces the links by which the Commonwealth joins people together from around the world.

Throughout Her Majesty’s reign, the Commonwealth has grown from just eight nations to 53 members representing over 2.4 billion people. During this time, The Queen has undertaken more than 200 visits to Commonwealth countries and visited every country of the Commonwealth (with the exception of Cameroon, which joined in 1995 and Rwanda which joined in 2009) as well as making many repeat visits.

There are two major projects which have been created in recognition of Her Majesty’s lifetime of service to the Commonwealth – The Queen’s Young Leaders and The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy.

Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy (QCC)
Launched by The Queen at CHOGM in Malta in 2015, an appeal was made to all Commonwealth nations to contribute areas of indigenous forest to be preserved in perpetuity to mark Her Majesty’s lifetime of service to the Commonwealth. Since then, over 40 Commonwealth countries have dedicated forestry projects or are planting new forests. In 2018, it is expected that all nations of the Commonwealth will have joined the QCC initiative to create a global network of indigenous forests to benefit communities and wildlife, now, and into the future.

Queen’s Young Leaders (QYL)
The Queen’s Young Leaders Programme was launched in 2014 by The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust in partnership with Comic Relief and The Royal Commonwealth Society. The programme recognises and celebrates inspiring young people from across the Commonwealth who are taking the lead in their communities and using their skills to transform lives.
Each year from 2014 to 2018, 60 exceptional young people have been selected to receive a Queen’s Young Leaders Award and become ‘Queen’s Young Leaders’ – one for every year that The Queen had served as Head of the Commonwealth at the time of her Diamond Jubilee. The final round of winners of the Queen’s Young Leaders Awards was announced in December.

Hospital’s visit was the last official engagement of 2015 for The Countess. Tomorrow is Christmas Ascot, so there’s hope we will see The Wessex family. Then there’s the church walk on Christmas Day. We also should see TRH’s on New Year’s Day, as they usually attend Sunday service, if they are still at Sandringham. So, still plenty to look forward before the end of this year!

However true stars of the event were canine partners, specially trained dogs. According to Western Morning News, The Countess of Wessex had a chance to meet all the dogs, who had practised a variety of tasks and had also perfected a bow when they met their Royal guest.

HRH is very fond of dogs, she always had a dog, even as a little girl. One of HRH’s best childhood memories is “Taking my dog for walks in the woods & playing pirates with trees as our ships & the streams with crocodiles!”. Curently Sophie is a proud owner of Martha, who was featured with HRH at the cover of Harper’s Bazaar. The Countess also has an i-Phone cover with dachshund and even a hair-clip, also in shape of a dachshund!

During the evening people could also hear a moving story from Jo Hill and her canine partner Derby. This partnership had the guests in tears, when Jo spoke about the difference Derby has made to her life as well as her four children and husband.

Guests were also given the opportunity to pull a cracker with a canine partner. All profits went to the charity, as Canine Partners receives no government funding and relies solely on public donations.

This is an annual event organized by Draycott Nursing and Care (leading private nursing and home care agency) in aid of Canine Partners, for four years now. During the service, Angela Hamlin founder of Draycott Nursing was presented with posies by canine partner Hamlin, who she sponsored.

Canine Partners is a charity (founded in 1990) that assists disabled people to enjoy greater independence and a better quality of life through the help of specially trained dogs. Dogs are trained to do tasks such as: opening and shutting doors, unloading the washing machine, picking up dropped items, pressing buttons and switches and getting help in an emergency. Dogs are trained for the disabled with even the most complex conditions including members of HM Armed Forces.

At this video you can see how canine partners change the lives of their partners. They not only help with everyday tasks, but bring sort of security, self-esteem and unconditional love. 
The cost of a canine partner is 20.000 pounds from selection as a puppy through to the end of his working life. However the cost of independence is priceless. Especially that there are more than 1.2 million people in the UK in need of such partner.

I was very happy to see The Countess of Wessex at the event, where animals are so crucial. My home was always filled with animals, currently I live with my cat Pola, parrot Winston and thousands of fishes. Not kidding. My father has an aquarium fishery… Not sure how to name it in English. And yes part of that is located at my apartment. Such things only in Poland!

I am ending my post with belated Happy Birthday to James, Viscount Severn, who turned 8 today! I hope he had a wonderful day, filled with Land Rovers!

The event was followed by a Reception at St. John’s Gate, St. John’s Lane, Clerkenwell in London.

This is the second time Her Royal Highness has attended the event (the last being in 2006). On arrival, HRH was greeted by Councillor Kat Fletcher, Deputy Mayor of the London Borough of Islington and Mr Rodney Green CBE, Prior of the Priory of England and the Islands and Chairman of the St John Ambulance Board of Trustees.

The Service was led by The Very Reverend Nicholas Frayling, Dean of the Priory and formerly Dean of Chichester.

The Priory of England and the Islands is the English branch of the Order of St John, which is a British Royal Order of Chivalry and a major international humanitarian charity with 400,000 volunteers and staff in over 40 countries. The Priory is responsible for delivering the Order’s charitable mission in England. This is mainly undertaken through its subsidiary, St John Ambulance.

For now, I have no pictures to share, but of course I am hoping to update my post.

Marta Cunningham CBE (soprano-singer and philanthropist) established The Not Forgotten Association in 1920, with the object of providing entertainment and recreation for the war wounded. Through her royal connections, she persuaded HRH Princess Mary (Princess Royal and Countess of Harewood – daughter of King George V and Queen Mary) to become the Association’s first patron, a position she held until her death in 1965. She was succeeded by HRH The Duchess of Kent who remained Patron until 2000. HRH The Princess Royal became charity’s Patron in 2000 and continues as such today.
