GUEST,Dave (the ancient mariner) BS: It falls to me. (65* d) RE: BS: It falls to me. 10 Apr 05

I think he works well for a lot of charities.
In 2004, The Prince of Wales helped to raise, directly or indirectly, around 100 million pounds for charity. He is also President or Patron of around 360 organisations.

Working for charities and voluntary organisations and making a difference for the better, both in this country and internationally, is a central part of The Prince of Wales's role and contribution as Heir to the Throne.

In the year to the end of March 2004, The Prince of Wales helped to raise, directly or indirectly, around 100 million for charity.

This figure does not include the financially un-quantified time, skills and commitment put in by tens of thousands of volunteers, mentors and others.

The Prince has 17 core charities: The Prince's Trust, The Prince of Wales's Charitable Foundation, The Prince of Wales's Foundation for Integrated Health, The Prince's Foundation for the Built Environment, The Prince of Wales's Phoenix Trust/Regeneration Through Heritage, In Kind Direct, The Prince's Drawing School, The Prince of Wales International Business Leaders Forum, Duchy Originals, Business in the Community, Business and the Environment, Scottish Business in the Community, PRIME-Cymru, PRIME-England, The Prince's School of Traditional Arts, The Prince of Wales Foundation US, The Prince's Scottish Youth Business Trust, The Prince of Wales's Arts & Kids Foundation, Youth Business International and The Prince of Wales's Education Summer School.
Although The Prince is well known for his work with young people, he is also Patron of a number of charities that help older people.

In 2004, The Prince increased the number of charities of which he is President or Patron to around 360. New charities of which His Royal Highness became President or Patron included the National Trust for Scotland and the British Red Cross, which he took over from the late Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother.

With some charities The Prince has a very close working involvement such as giving strategic direction, making key appointments and supporting operational management.

With others The Prince takes a less 'hands-on' approach, but still spends considerable time paying visits, attending fundraising events and taking part in policy meetings and discussions.

Whatever the level of his involvement, The Prince of Wales will not accept a position unless he has time to take an active interest in the organisation.

His Royal Highness has a wide range of interests which are reflected in his charitable activities. They include social and community issues, rural affairs, health, education, young people, the built and natural environments, art and music, national heritage, the elderly and religion.

Underlying much of his work is The Prince's long standing commitment to drawing on this nation's talents and traditions to help people realise their potential and opportunities.
