Every policy sold we donate 50p to The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy as part of our commitment to the preservation of the world’s forests
Proud to support The Royal Commonwealth Society and The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy programme.
The Royal Commonwealth Society (RCS) is a champion for the modern Commonwealth and the valuable youth networks it provides. It is active in developing programmes which facilitate young people’s involvement in improving the lives and prospects of all Commonwealth citizens.
Such programmes, often run in partnership with civil society and governments, address challenges which endanger the rights of citizens, limit opportunity and inhibit prosperity, such as access to education, early and child marriage, gender inequality, social violence and environmental threats.
The RCS is an independent charity that depends on the support of individuals who respect the values of democracy, the rule of law and human rights upon which the Commonwealth is based. Your contribution is crucial in helping the RCS to fulfil its responsibility and inspire a generation of Commonwealth citizens to ensure those values are a living reality.
The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy (QCC) was launched in 2015 to honour the leadership of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, as Head of the Commonwealth for over six decades.
To commemorate such a historic achievement The Royal Commonwealth Society, together with charity Cool Earth and the Commonwealth Forestry Association, has set up a project with the ambition of creating a hugely significant environmental legacy for people throughout the Commonwealth to enjoy for generations to come.
How can you help
The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy brings together a global network of conservation projects and seeks to raise awareness of the need to sustain a healthy population of trees for the future of our world. It has already secured support from 23 governments, but many more need to commit to help its mission to establish one QCC site in each Commonwealth nation. GoSkippy is very proud to help the RCS and its partners to achieve the QCC’s objectives. We want to share with you our passion for conservation and encourage you to consider making a contribution. If you are able to, please add GiftAid.
