George joins Landmark Trust as Ambassador
George has been appointed an Ambassador for the Landmark Trust – joining their efforts to save some of Britain’s building heritage.
The Landmark Trust has two goals: saving places, and also promoting the public enjoyment of historic buildings.
The trust was founded by John Smith – a descendant of the great 19th-century travel pioneer Thomas Cook – who conceived a simple but original model through which the buildings he saved would not become museums, to be peeked at over a rope, but would be living places which people could inhabit as their own for short spells.
A spokesman for the Trust said: “Our Ambassadors are high profile supporters who share our passion for saving important buildings which would otherwise be lost. They help us to raise awareness of the work we do – to encourage more people to stay in our properties and support our fundraising appeals.”
