January 15 – The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Visit Bradford

On January 15, 2020 The Duke and Duchess visited Bradford, one of the UK’s most diverse cities — to visit projects which support and promote community cohesion.

The Duke and Duchess started their day at the City Hall in Centenary Square where they joined a group of young people from across the community to hear about life in Bradford. They also met with representatives from local employers and businesses who are helping young people into employment. Afterwards, William and Catherine greeted excited locals.

Their next stop was to My Lahore, a British Asian restaurant chain which takes inspiration from Lahore, known as the Food Capital of Pakistan. There, The Duke and Duchess were greeted by CEO Asghar Ali and managing director Shakoor Ahmed before heading inside the kitchen to meet with students from Bradford College who are on a kitchen apprenticeship scheme. They then tried their hand at making Kulfi milkshakes, before sitting down to meet representatives from the UK Women’s Muslim Council and those who have benefited from the Council’s Curry Circle, an initiative that provides a hot two-course meal for people who are homeless or struggling to feed themselves.

William and Catherine then visited one of Bradford’s Khidmat Centres, whose main focus is to help the most vulnerable members of the community from minority ethnic backgrounds. They heard about the activities and workshops offered at the centre, and the organisations that they support and joined a session involving groups supported by Better Start Bradford, which delivers over 20 projects to pregnant women and families with children under the age of 4. From there they joined a Better Start Little Dots workshop, which uses music and play to support children’s social, emotional and physical development, while simultaneously supporting adult self esteem. They also joined a workshop with Near Neighbours, an organization that brings together people from religiously and ethnically diverse communities across the UK to get to know each other better.

Whilst a lot has changed since then, my commitment and support for this wonderful organisation and the work that you do has not.

Over the years, I have seen first-hand the depth of EACH’s reputation as a standard-bearer in children’s hospice care, both here in the U.K. and internationally too, during my visits to Malaysia and Australia.

Your hugely dedicated and talented team are at the core of this success and I wanted especially today to thank you, Graham, for everything you have done over the past sixteen years and to wish you a very happy retirement.

The Nook Hospice is a fitting tribute to all your staff, its generous supporters and its awe-inspiring children and families who I have been so lucky to meet here today. I therefore could not be more delighted to invite my army of little helpers to join me in officially opening this new hospice….”

Her Royal Highness has been Patron of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices since January 2012, a charity that offers support for children and young people with life-threatening conditions and supports families across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk.
