Princess Anne at the FCH 

Abs has just put this post on Facebook. Obviously a very proud moment for the home. Great work Abs and a great honour!
"I feel very proud today that it all happened during our watch - a letter from Buckingham Palace (see below)  following the recent visit in April by Her Royal Highness, The Princess Royal, Princess Anne. 

Thank you to HRH Princess Royal for visiting the Freetown Cheshire Home, a special and historic place. Your visit created a positive image for disabled people; that they are achievers and also helped dispel negative perceptions of marginalisation and discrimination so common here! For the Home, you have helped to bring back some of the past glory of this historic place.
I particularly like the sentence "The Princess was also pleased to purchase some material made by the residents" - it says a lot about how comfortable and pleased HRH was with the quality of production of our goods at the Home. You can put in your orders people!

A special thank you to the British High Commission in Sierra Leone for recommending the Home for the visit. Thank you too to all the children, staff, all the workmen who helped transform the place, and finally a huge thank you especially to Farrella D Ryan-Coker of Ambassador for Humanity for funding the rehabilitation of our Vocational Skills Centre originally built by Leonard Cheshire Disability"
