Shergroup does its bit for the Duchess of Cambridge's chosen charity

Shergroup - A Company with History and Heritage at its Heart Recent weeks have seen Shergroup TEAM members doing their bit for a favourite charity of the Duchess of Cambridge by selling and wearing the distinctive multi-coloured butterfly pin badges associated with the East Anglia's Children's Hospices charity.

As well as being a chosen charity of the Duchess, East Anglia's Children's Hospices has also long been a favourite charity of Shergroup CEO Claire Sandbrook, who was invited to represent the company at the opening of 'The Treehouse', a new facility operated by the East Anglia's Children's Hospices charity - an event at which the Duchess gave her first solo public speech.

'The Treehouse' hospice is a purpose-built facility which has six bedrooms for children and young people and accommodation for their families to use for overnight stays. On-site facilities include a multi-sensory studio, hydrotherapy pool, music room, play areas, sensory garden, a woodland walk and specialist outdoor play equipment. It is a non-clinical environment where the staff don't wear uniforms and families are encouraged to treat the hospice as a home-from-home.

For Claire it proved to be one of the highlights of the year so far:

"Shergroup is a proud supporter of this particular charity and I was delighted not only to hear that the Duchess had chosen this particular charity as one of those that she would take a personal interest in when she announced the charities she would be supporting back at the start of the year but also to receive a personal invitation to the opening of this new facility near Ipswich and to have the chance to meet the Duchess.

Shergroup - A Company with History and Heritage at its HeartOn the day of the opening of this new facility, the Duchess herself was looking absolutely radiant. She is a stunningly beautiful young woman - close-up and in person she looks just as good as she does in her pictures - and this was all set off perfectly by a lovely looking outfit in a Shergroup shade of purple.

She was so at ease when meeting the staff, patients, their families and the fundraisers invited to attend the opening - one would not have guessed that this was one of her very first solo engagements and the first at which she was going to give a speech. The speech itself was short but very well delivered and struck just the right note for this auspicious occasion.

I've said it before about her and I'll say it again; we are all - William, the Royal Family and the nation as a whole - so lucky to have this young lady taking such a prominent and active role in our society and our lives. Not only is she beautiful and intelligent but she shows a level headedness and common touch that will ensure that she helps propel the Royal Family back towards the heart of the nation's affections - a position it hasn't always occupied in recent years."
