"We are both delighted to be Patrons of the WRVS national search for Diamond Champions.
"In this Diamond Jubilee year we wanted to seek out and celebrate the contribution of the older generation who, often unsung and unnoticed, help to improve life for others in their communities.
"In supporting this Diamond Champions search, we hope that with your help we will be able to find those very special people who give so much to others and yet never ask for anything in return. It is these people who, by their acts of kindness and selfless giving, make a real difference to those less fortunate and who are, we believe, a vital part of what makes the United Kingdom a civilized and caring society. Of course modern life brings many challenges and difficulties, but neighbourliness, friendship and a helping hand in times of need cost nothing and yet are invaluable and timeless.
"We do hope you will send in your Diamond Champion nominations; you will be helping to highlight and celebrate their significant contribution to our society. We both look forward to reading and hearing about your champions and to meeting at least some of them at a party later this year."
