Sophie volunteers packing parcels
The Countess of Wessex has continued volunteering to help pack essential food parcels for NHS staff. Sophie, along with other volunteers from Army Cadets, Army Medical Services, Frimley Health and Queen Alexandra's Royal Nursing Corps, helped prepare food and care packages.
Both of her children were born at Frimley Park Hospital and, like other members of the Royal Family, the Countess has long supported NHS staff and volunteers through her charitable work. Sophie is one of millions in the United Kingdom who is volunteering her time to support NHS staff, charitable initiatives and vulnerable communities during this unprecedented time.
While most major royal events have now been cancelled through the summer, the Women of Windsor are continuing to support important initiatives and vulnerable communities. In addition to releasing statements and recorded messages, they are sharing footage of zoom calls they are having with charities and organizations as they adjust to the new normal of self quarantining and social distancing.
If you are not in a high risk category and are able and willing to volunteer, please check out Royal Volunteer Service for ways to get involved.
