William told Natalie Webster, who runs the Welsh organisation Dal Dy Dir in Kerry, Powys: “Thank goodness you’re there. It’s got to be reassuring for everyone when so much is changing around them to know that you’re still there and your team is looking out for them. That bit of reassurance goes a long way.”
To Jacky Crawford, at the Moorlands Community Charity, in Goole, East Yorkshire, he said: “I think Britain is at its best, weirdly, when we’re all in a crisis. That community spirit and community feel comes rushing back quicker than anything else.”
He added: “You’re doing a fantastic job.”
Footage of the calls made last week were released as William becomes patron of the National Emergencies Trust for 2020 from today.
He recently fronted its Coronavirus Appeal which has raised £45million since March 18.
Some £12.5million has already been distributed to charities across the UK, helping communities most affected by coronavirus.
Both Dal Dy Dir and the Moorlands Community Charity have been using their grants to distribute food and other urgent supplies to vulnerable local people.
