THE Mayor of the Royal Borough pays tribute to The Duke of Edinburgh by selecting The Prince Philip Trust Fund as his chosen charity during his term in office.

Councillor John Story made the announcement on Wednesday 10 June, which would have been the 100th birthday of His Royal Highness.

The trust fund supports a wide range of charities across the borough, including those who help young people, the elderly, or vulnerable people, and providing access to sports and the arts as well.

The mayor will be hosting a special event in Windsor Guildhall next spring to raise awareness of the trust, as well as raise funds for the charity.

Cllr Story said: “I am delighted to be supporting The Prince Philip Trust Fund. The fund has helped many people and projects across the borough. Since being established as a grant-giving trust in 1977 it has supported over 1,600 causes and distributed over £2 million in grants.”

Chris Aitken, secretary and trustee for The Prince Philip Trust Fund, said: “It is a great mark of respect for our late founder, His Royal Highness Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh, and what he has done for the communities of Windsor and Maidenhead over the 44 years of the Prince Philip Trust Fund.

“Given that today marks what would have been the Duke of Edinburgh’s centenary, what a wonderful tribute to his legacy that, together, we can continue to support the wide breadth of charities across the borough with grant funds, to the benefit of the residents and the community in which he lived and worked.”
