Britain’s Prince Harry praised for commitment to charity
Britain’s Prince Harry has been praised for his commitment to his Sentebale charity.
Polo star and Ralph Lauren model Nacho Figueras, who is an ambassador for the children’s charity, has spoke of the Prince’s commitment, leadership and energetic nature.
He said: “Harry is so committed to this charity that he never fails to inspire me. With Harry’s leadership, we are changing a whole generation for the better …
“Harry is the best as a guy friend. Not only is he competitive and energetic when he plays polo, but he is a fun person to be around in general. It is wonderful to see him.”
Nacho took part in a charity polo match with the 31-year-old royal on Wednesday afternoon (04.05.16) at Valiente Polo Farm in Wellington, Florida despite the heavy rain in the hours prior to the match.
Anne Gerwig, Wellington’s newly crowned mayor, added to PEOPLE magazine: “It feels so right to have Prince Harry play polo here because we are such an equestrian town. I feel like Cinderella hoping to meet the Prince! We are privileged to have him here.”
Meanwhile, the charity previously picked up Life Ball’s Swarovski Crystal Of Hope Award for building the Mamohato Children’s Centre in Lesotho, which offers vulnerable children through healthcare and education.
Life Ball founder Gery Keszler said: “We always select programmes to receive this award that are relatively unsung heroes, doing interesting, innovative and important work but not yet well-known.
“This award not only donates substantial funds, but also brings an international spotlight to the work. I will be visiting the programme in April, which helps children living with HIV/AIDS educationally, emotionally and physically – it is really exceptional and we are proud to be working with them.”
