Prince Edward and Sophie Wessex Paid a low-key visit for Special Cause

On Wednesday, Prince Edward and the Countess of Wessex paid a low-key visit to a Northamptonshire charity to pay tribute to staff for the work that they do support the local community.

Home-Start Corby is one of many Home-Starts across the nation, and the charity supports families with young children.

Their services range from helping with loneliness, mental health, physical disabilities of a parent or child, financial worries, supporting young mums and the challenges of twins and triplets.

During the pandemic, volunteers at the charity have also created support packs for night times, which consists of items like toothbrushes, cuddly toys and bedtime stories, and Edward and Sophie helped create one during their visit.

The royal couple thanked volunteers for their hard work and spoke to staff and volunteers, as well as families that the charity had helped.

The pair were also presented with a special homemade bag by Hope, aged three, whose family has been supported by Home-Start Corby, before going on to unveil a plaque to commemorate their day there.

Maggie MacKay, Manager at Home-Start Corby, said: "We were delighted to welcome The Earl and Countess. Their visit means so much to everyone. Our volunteers do so much to support families and it makes a huge difference to our community.
