Buy British support Jubilee Yacht Appeal
Buy British are proud to support the new Jubilee Yacht. If everyone donated just £1 we could provide a new Royal Yacht now for the Queen and her charities now.
Buy British are proud to lend our support to the launch of the Jubilee Yacht charity (http://www.jubileeyacht.org.uk). The challenge is to raise 60 million pounds ($92 million USD, 74m Euros) to buy an existing Yacht to replace the Royal Yacht Britannia which was decommissioned over 15 years ago. The yacht will be a gift to Her Majesty the Queen and Prince Philip from the people of Britain and commonwealth.
We can’t think of a better way of showing our appreciation for her dedication and years of tireless service that she has personally shown to this country over the past 60 years. The plan is to make the new yacht available for the royal family for 60 days of the year, one day to mark each of her years on the throne whilst the remainder of the time the boat will be available to her charities for fund raising activities.
We at Buy British believe that a new yacht Britannia will help project Britain’s image as a great island nation as it sails into foreign ports and of course we will try and ensure that it is as British made as possible too.
It is clear that the sailing and boats hold a special place in the Queens heart, with the Jubilee river pageant forming the centre piece of the Diamond Jubilee weekend celebrations. The river pageant on Sunday 3rd June, finishes near Tower bridge, the same place back in November 1997 where the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and the Prince of Wales held a special farewell lunch on the Royal Yacht Britannia on its final visit to London.
If everyone gave just one £1, yes just £1 pound then we could provide this fantastic gift for the Queen and a much needed facility to promote Britain around the world. With your help we can make this happen . Click to donate now
