Ahead of his speech to the Church of Scotland’s General Assembly, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge is touring Scotland to raise funds for charities of the Church of Scotland.
The Duke of Cambridge spent Sunday visiting Queen’s Bay Lodge, a charity run by CrossReach, the social care wing of the Church of Scotland, and the Grassmarket Community Project. During the royal visit, the Duke received tours of the facilities and presentations from the organizations about how they adapted during the pandemic.
Rev. Dr. Richard Frazer, Greyfriars Kirk minister and founder of the Grassmarket Community Project, described his ministry work as “about building a nurturing community, developing people’s self-confidence and enabling people to contribute positively to their community, is rooted in Gospel values.”
Elated by the Duke’s visit Frazer said, “The visit showcased the amazing work of the team of members, staff and volunteers who make the Grassmarket Community Project the thriving, supportive and enterprising place that it is.”
While at the Queen’s Bay Lodge in Edinburgh, William took tea with the home’s 28 residents in the garden.
Manager at Queen’s Bay Lodge Maria Toth said the visit “really has lifted everyone’s spirits following such a difficult and challenging year and will live long in our memories.”
