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

“The YMCA family across all four nations is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of His Royal Highness, The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

“The Duke gave his life to service, and his passion for transforming the lives of young people through the skills, confidence, and sense of connection fostered by the Duke of Edinburgh Awards is a legacy that will live on.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family, and we join the nation in mourning the loss of an extraordinary character.”
