CAF thanks its Patron, Prince Philip

4 May 2017

Following today’s announcement that His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh is to stand down from public engagements, Chief Executive of the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) John Low said:

“All of us at CAF extend our thanks and good wishes to His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh as he steps down from carrying out royal engagements. Prince Philip has a long record supporting charities in the UK and around the world, both behind the scenes and publically, with his patronage of around 800 organisations including CAF.

“The Royal Family plays a vital role supporting charities and encouraging people to give. Many of us might not have heard of some of these remarkable charities if it were not for the Royal Family’s enduring commitment to them.

“CAF has greatly benefitted from the support of our Patron, HRH the Duke of Edinburgh over many years, and it is good to see the Royal Family continuing as a powerful advocate for charities which are as important to making Britain great today as at any time in the past.”
