Today the Queen purchased the first Majblomma (mayflower) pin of the year from pupils from a Stockholm school at the Royal Palace. The money from this, which will be sold around the country for a few weeks now (as it is every spring) will go to children in need. Last year was a record year in the sales of this pin.

The Queen with the pupils at the Royal Palce, the first photo is from the Royal Court and the two others from Fotomarktplatz:

During a ceremony at the Royal Palace of Stockholm yesterday, the Queen awarded a diploma to students of the Kvinneby School in Linköping for winning The National Association of The Mayflower’s fundraising competition 2005 (selling the most mayflower pins).

In connection to this ceremony, four chosen researchers were presented with aid from the organisation (along with the already 26 other research projects that receive economic support for their research about improving childrens health and life quality).

Queen Silvia bought on Tuesday the year's first Mayflower pins at
the Royal Palace in Stockholm, April 13, 2010.
The Queen is the highest patron of the Mayflower Charity Foundation,
which is Sweden’s largest Child help organisation, and buys the very
first Mayflower each year. Bahar Garmiani and Linnea Hultqvist from
Maltesholms´s school had the honor of selling this year's flower that
is light blue.
