Prince William made a secret visit to a London homeless center before Christmas. He worked alongside a team of volunteers to prepare hot meals for residents. He also helped pack food and spent time chatting with the residents about their recent experiences.
The Duke of Cambridge first visited The Passage in 1993. He made that visit with his mother Diana as a young child. Princess of Wales has since visited many times both publicly and privately. The father-of-three also worked to prepare hot meals for those who had been moved off the streets and into emergency accommodation.
Prince William previously revealed what a ‘deep and lasting impression’ the charity has had on him over the years. That’s why he loves to spend time with those homeless people and hear their experiences.
Last month Prince William volunteered at The Passage homeless charity on three separate occasions before Christmas. At that time, he visited the charity’s Resource Centre in Westminster and volunteered to prepare and serve meals. He also visited two residential projects of the charity. One is the Passage House Assessment Centre in Pimlico, and another one is Montfort House in Bethnal Green.
During this pandemic period, the charity is passing a difficult time. Because the center has to serve 70,000 meals during this national lockdown period. It is expected that William’s visits will act as a much-needed publicity boost for this charity.
Chief Executive of “The Passage”, Mick Clarke said, “This year, more than ever, our army of volunteers have enabled The Passage to keep our vital services running throughout both lockdowns and the time in-between.” He also said, “From our emergency food hub to fundraising, outreach to essential office support, our Home for Good program to our residential projects, we are extremely fortunate to have such a versatile and committed group of supporters.”
