10 AugA special connection.

Some of you may remember our exciting visit from HRH The Princess Royal in 2017. You can read about that joyous occasion again here. This special connection continued earlier this Spring when another important meeting occurred.

The Governor of Hunan, Mr Xu Dazhe met with HRH The Princess Royal (Princess Anne) in Buckingham Palace. The Secretary-General of Hunan Provincial Government, Mr Wang Qun and Mrs Chen Wen, the Minister of the Chinese Embassy in the UK joined the meeting.

During the meeting, Princess Anne reviewed her visit in Hunan back to 2017 including her visit, together with the British Embassy Dame Barbara Woodward to the Butterfly Hospice. At the end of the meeting, Governor of Hunan, Mr Xu Dazhe present the gift and a letter from Butterfly Hospice on the behalf of the Butterfly Hospice with best wishes.

The Royal visit has been a very memorable and important occasion in our journey to date. In a discussion between Lyn Gould and Professor Liu Ji tong after HRH visit, he said that the cause of children’s palliative care had been brought to the attention of officials at the highest level. He said the influence of the conference and Royal visit extended beyond Changsha, beyond Hunan and right up to government level. What an achievement!
