A statement on the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth
Following the announcement of the death of Her Majesty The Queen, our Chairman Tom Brock OBE has shared this statement.
"It is with great sadness that we acknowledge the passing of Her Majesty The Queen. We join the world in mourning the passing of our monarch and Head of State.
"Her considerate commitment to charities across the world during her 70-year service to the people of the United Kingdom, the Realms and the Commonwealth was renowned.
"Her Majesty clearly valued the public and voluntary sector and saw her support of this as important. Her Majesty was committed to over 600 charities directly, many of them focusing on supporting young people and the conservation of wildlife and the environment.
"The passion and affection that she had for Scotland and its stunning landscapes were obvious. Deeside, in particular Balmoral, was a special place for her and her family.
"Our thoughts are with all The Royal Family at this sad time.
"As a mark of respect, we will be pausing on some of our planned activities, celebration events, and training."
