As HRH The Duke of Edinburgh embarks on his retirement from public engagements, we would like to take the opportunity to say an enormous thank you for the dedicated support he has given to Action Medical Research over the last 62 years as our Royal Patron.
Over the last six decades the Duke of Edinburgh has hosted and attended numerous charity events. Most recently, welcoming 130 Action guests to a royal reception at Buckingham Palace, held in March 2017 in the impressive Picture Gallery. Here researchers representing six current studies funded by Action shared details of their vital work.
Our charity Chair, Phil Hodkinson, says: “We are extremely grateful to The Duke of Edinburgh, for his tireless support. He has supported the charity since its very early days and has generously hosted many receptions where Action supporters have been delighted to experience his continuing commitment and enthusiasm for the vital research the charity funds. We wish him all the best as he retires from royal duties this autumn.”
