Sarah Ferguson recently took the time to visit a special nonprofit during her latest royal outing! On July 21, the Duchess of York took a trip to Huddersfield where she visited Ruddi's Retreat, a charity for sick children that she was recently named patron of.
Sarah Ferguson praised by newest patronage on social media
Sarah Ferguson shared photos of herself outside Ruddi's Retreat with children holding signs welcoming her to Huddersfield. Wearing a bright blue blazer, purple face mask, and colourful crown, the royal also held a bouquet of yellow flowers. She called it "such an honour" to visit the nonprofit, which helps allow families of sick children to enjoy holiday homes.
The nonprofit wrote on Instagram that they were "so unbelievably proud" to welcome the Duchess of York, saying she "has the heart and passion that they need." Ruddi's Retreat wasn't the only nonprofit Sarah visited during her outing, as she also stopped by palliative care organization The Kirkwood. Both charities recently received the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service.
Sarah also visited two more organizations doing important work! The royal stopped by the University of Huddersfield, commenting on Instagram that she was "lucky to meet the unsung heroes who kept the campus operational and safe." And to end off her day, she travelled to Sheepridge where she visited Sophie and Serena, the founders of self-empowerment organization Conscious Youth!
