PROMISEworks have received invaluable support from Somerset Community Foundation since 2017

So we were delighted when one of our mentors and his mentee were invited to meet Her Royal Highness Sophie, Princess of Wessex on a visit she paid to the Community Foundations head offices.

Protocol for meeting royalty was discussed and our representatives waited in line to be introduced, when our turn came, the mentor was asked about the sorts of activities that they undertook together and then attention turned to the mentee...

Fortunately Her Royal Highness had brought her sense of humour with her as when she asked our young man what he thought when he first met his mentor he said "I just hoped he wouldn't be a dick!!"

We hope Her Royal Highness enjoyed her visit and perhaps we found a way to ensure that she remembers meeting PROMISEworks.
