In 2022, Her Majesty the Queen will become the first British monarch ever to mark 70 years on the throne and celebrate a Platinum Jubilee and we want to be part of the celebrations - which will be wonderful all throughout the commonwealth. We want to help mark this historic year with a project that celebrates and gives back with the Platinum Project! We want to create 70 acts of kindness, donations, or presentation that help others and support creativity and fun - and we want to hear from you!
We will list the events as they take place below, and we encourage you to complete the contact form with your ideas on how we can help - a book drive, charity walk, music or dance show - we know there are many things we can do, in your community and ours. Updates on the 2022 celebrations will be posted here too. So much will take place, and we want to share it all. A great celebration for our wonderful Monarch! From the UK: A story about planned events. Enjoy this article!
