Following the success of last year’s TRUST charity candle, Prince’s Trust Ambassadors Kelly Hoppen MBE and Tess Daly have teamed up for a second time to create a limited edition candle trio, The Trust Collection, to celebrate the 70 th birthday of His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales and his ongoing commitment to young people across the UK.
The medium-sized candles, sold as a set of three, have been individually named to highlight the key motivations behind The Trust’s work with young people – ‘Believe”, “Inspire” and “Trust”. The duo decided on Kelly’s iconic Scent One as the fragrance for the candle. Scent One is an evocative blend of the aromatic, the woody and the spicy. A patchouli and myrrh base weaves in harmony with floral heart notes of clove and violet helping produce a warm autumnal atmosphere.
Ahead of the Royal occasion on 14th November, the candles will be available for purchase on 12th November on kellyhoppen.com.
Shoppers can also buy the candles for one day only in-store at Fortnum and Mason, and have the opportunity to meet the world-renowned designer and Strictly Come Dancing presenter in person at a special public event on 12th November from 5.30pm – 7pm.Kelly Hoppen MBE said:
Through His Trust, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales has given hundreds of thousands of young people across the country the opportunity to realis their potential. His commitment and belief in them knows no bounds. As a Prince’s Trust Ambassador, I continue to be humbled by the determination and ambition of the young people I meet. With the right support, many go on to lead productive, successful lives. It’s gratifying to know that the sale of our new candles will go some way to ensuring more young people will benefit from this incredible charity.
Tess Daly added:
Through my role as an Ambassador for The Prince’s Trust, I am inspired to see first-hand how young people, many of whom face multiple challenges, can succeed against the odds. Through the sale of our new candles we hope many more people will learn about The Trust and that we will also raise vital funds to support its transformative work.
The limited edition candle set costs £45, with 100% of proceeds donated to The Prince’s Trust.
