Prince Charles helps raise money for Clutha Trust
Britain’s Prince Charles has lent his support to a charity in memory of 10 people who died in the Clutha helicopter crash.
The 66-year-old royal and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, visited the Glasgow pub where the police helicopter crashed and they signed a ukulele, which will subsequently be auctioned to raise much-needed funds for the Clutha Trust.
Meanwhile, Charles also visited the fire-damaged Glasgow School of Art (GSA), with GSA director Professor Tom Inns saying: “He’s always been a great supporter of the school. He’s very passionate about traditional crafts and art and design – all things that are important to us as a school and as part of the work to bring this building back.
“He had seen pictures of the damage but he was genuinely shocked to see it up close.
“He was explaining how the Royal Family dealt with the Windsor Castle fire so I think he really understands how complex it is to deal with something like this.”
The Grade-A listed building was badly damaged last year as students were getting read for their degree shows.
