The Countess of Wessex will help a charity bury a time capsule when she visits Oxfordshire on Thursday.
Sophie, will attend a ceremony at Dorchester Abbey for Parents and Children Together (PACT), where she will help the charity celebrate more than 100 years and bury a time capsule in the grounds.
The time capsule will contain items that have been collected from a number of projects that PACT have been involved, which will highlight the hard work the charity does in adoption, fostering and within the community.
The charity, which Sophie will honour, finds families for children who are in care through adoption and fostering services in the South East.
“We are thrilled and honoured that HRH The Countess of Wessex will be visiting us at Dorchester Abbey for this exciting occasion,” PACT’s chief executive Jan Fishwisk said.
“The time capsule will serve as a record of our work so far and a celebration of all we have achieved.”
During her visit, the mother-of-two will meet local dignities, trustees of the charity and children from Dorchester School before she unveils a plaque to mark her visit.
After this the Countess, will open The Highfield Unit and visit the Oxford Food Bank, both in Oxford.
