YMCA Statement: HM Queen Elizabeth II

Queen Elizabeth 2nd

On behalf of YMCA Scotland, YMCA Ireland and YMCA England & Wales:  

“It is with great sadness that the YMCA family across all four nations acknowledge the passing of Her Majesty The Queen.

“As we recognise this grave loss, we are reminded of Her Majesty’s selfless devotion to our nation and to the Commonwealth, providing commendable leadership and continuity during times of crisis and of celebration.

“This year marks the 70th anniversary of Her Majesty as Patron of the National Councils of YMCAs, succeeding her father King George VI in 1952.

“Her remarkable reign is interconnected with YMCA history, and we are immensely proud to have had her support for so many years. Our gratitude for her dedication to improving the lives of future generations will never be forgotten.

“The love and admiration the nation feels for their longest reigning monarch will live on, and we join together in mourning for our beloved Queen. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Royal Family at this tragic time.”
