Hero of the Hour – The Duke of Westminster

Section:

Criticism of the 29-year-old Duke of Westminster for quietly giving £12.5 million to the UK’s coronavirus response is most unfair; any anger should instead be directed at bailout demanding billionaires like Sir Richard Branson and Sir Philip Green

The richest under thirty in the world, 29-year-old landowner, Hugh Grosvenor, Duke of Westminster has shown generosity in giving £12.5 million to “provide support to NHS staff, key workers and their children and families.”

 

Quietly announcing his move without seeking any fanfare through his Westminster Foundation on Twitter, the seventh Duke – known to his friends as ‘Hughie’ and like his prison reform campaigner sister, Lady Edwina, credited for being both “low key” and “down to earth” – commented:

 

“On behalf of my family and everyone at the Grosvenor Estate, I want to say a huge thank you to all our amazing NHS staff and everyone providing critical frontline services. We are all humbled and incredibly grateful that you are working tirelessly to keep us safe and keep the country functioning.”

 

“NHS staff and key workers don’t work in isolation. They have children and families whose health and wellbeing will also be highly impacted by this crisis. As they keep us safe, I want to help provide as much support to them and their families as we can. Our donation will help create a Family Fund within NHS Charities Together to provide food, respite, rehabilitation and positive mental health support to NHS staff and their families.”

 

“While the impact of this crisis is being felt immediately, the virus will sadly also affect people’s lives long into the future. That’s why I’m keen to support the longer-term scientific and socio-economic response to the epidemic. Through these donations, my Foundation will work with a range of fantastic charities and organisations who are able to help vulnerable people in the difficult months ahead.”

 

We join those saluting the Duke of Westminster for his laudable donations and suggest others with similarly large bank balances follow suit. It is now time for the likes of the greedy pigs Sir Richard Branson and Sir Philip Green to take heed of this generous young man’s actions and put a stop to their nefarious demands for government bailouts; instead, they too ought to dip their hands into their very deep pockets and finally put their money where their almightily large mouths are.

  1. Very generous young man. Unlike that vile airhead billionairess Tamara Ecclestone girl you mentioned a couple of days ago, the Duke did not go on television seeking to publicise his business by giving £12.5m. Well done him and shame on her for thinking the public would be impressed by her promoting her husband’s shoddy art gallery and boasting about giving a meagre £25,000. Why doesn’t she match Hughie? Come on Tamara – Put your money where your mouth is.

  2. P.S. If you want to be bigshots Ecclestone family – Why don’t you give £12.5m too Petra Palmer (or whatever you are now called) and make it £25m?

  3. Nobody should criticise the Duke for such a gesture. He should be lauded as his father rightly was for the work he did for war veterans rehabilitation – and look at how much money the Grosvenors gave to that and then tell me they’re anything but extremely generous.

    P.S. Penny – You are right about those Ecclestones though. They should actually give in this fashion instead of in their bragging ways. It’s all about publicity for those chav girls.

  4. Great news for the fight as is the work of Captain Tom. These are people to celebrate as heroes. Well done to them all.

    • Absolutely agree with Penny, Simon, Bob and Eric Anderson. Westminster deserves recognition for his generosity; chip off the old block.

  5. Send him Down Under —— we need bucket loads of dollars right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hand some over mate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Good on him, well done cobber. Unlike Harry pot head and Megain swanning around LA handing out food parcels to the needy. Just another publicity stunt with all the correct camera angles. Do we believe for one second those two twerps are strolling the streets of LA without an entourage of security and hangers on, please give me a break.
