A London Aids centre made famous by frequent visits by the late Princess of Wales is to be sold because the Terrence Higgins Trust charity can no longer afford its upkeep-
"Charity bosses admit that news of the London Lighthouse’s closure will be “upsetting” for people who have connections with the former hospice, which opened in 1988 and was one of the first to treat patients with Aids."

The work isn't stopping (that is important) - it's only a building. Buildings, objects, jewellery and clothes connected with Diana get sold on a regular basis.

I like that she was full of life and enjoyed visiting her charities and helping others.

Would this not be more accurately in Harry's threads as he is the present royal involved?

A very lovely story told by Diana's chef

http://nypost.com/2007/08/01/dish-on-di/

Quote:
I’d never done charity work in my life till I met Diana. But having met her and seeing firsthand how she touched people, it inspired me. One day the princess came by and said, “No lunch for me today, Darren, I’m going out.” “Off to a girly lunch?” I asked. And she said, “No, I’m going to see a little boy who’s dying of AIDS.” And I had a lump in my throat, and I said, “Wow. What can you say or do to a little boy like that?” She said, “If by telling him one of my jokes – and you know how bad my jokes are – and if by holding his hand and chatting with him, I could take his mind off the pain for 30 minutes, it will have been worth it to me.”

Diana's dairy -- her visit to Mother Teresa's hospice in Calcutta

Diana's dairy about her visit to Mother Teresa's hospice in Calcutta

Quote:
Today something very profound touched my life. I went to Mother Teresa's home in Calcutta and found the direction I've been searching for all these years. The Sisters sang to me on arrival, a deeply spiritual experience and I soared to such great heights in my spirit. The light shone from within these ladies, saints for want of a better word - such love came from their eyes and their touch was full of warmth. I was then taken by Sister Fredericka to the chapel to pray with the Novices and Sisters - they sang the Lord's Prayer and with our shoes off we prayed together on our knees. Next I saw our Mother's love for children, abandoned or just afflicted by nature in some way. Malnutrition and TB was common amongst these little people. I picked up a little boy who was blind and deaf - I hugged him so tightly, hoping he could feel my love and healing coming through.

I gazed at this alarmingly large number of children whom were without parental care but was somewhat reassured by the care the Sisters were showing. After an hour there, I was taken to Mother's hospice for the dying and there was the greatest impact.... Hundreds of beds lined the room with such sick men and women, some crying, some sleeping and some dying - dying with dignity with a "carer" beside them. I knew the individual was so happy to be leaving this place under Mother Teresa's roof - probably the first time in their lives that someone had cared for them. Ironically, at one bed there was a box of chocolates. I was told by the Sisters that the contents were the only piece of food that the 'patients' would allow to pass their lips.

One particular gentleman had to be persuaded to eat his and so I placed it in his mouth myself. He had TB.

What an enlightening experience for me - it felt so right to be there, to be beside these sick people as they prepared to finish their stay on this planet. The emotion running through that hospice was very strong and the effect it had on me was how much I wanted and longed to be a part of all this on a global scale.

I have a deep feeling of a mission to be fulfilled. It has set me apart from others for a long time now. I had my questions answered in Calcutta and I wish that it was possible to put my true feelings on to paper, but they run too deep and would frighten those around me by their intensity.

The Sisters were Angels, such kindness came out of them and I prayed with them yet again upstairs in their chapel. It was all serene and, on reflection, a sacred moment in time. On my return to the UK I am a changed person once again... I've learned a great deal and my energies are restored to even greater strength. I have an enormous amount inside me that I want to share with those who suffer or those who require light in their dark existences.

The power comes from within and having responsibility gives us the power to make changes in our lives...maybe it's time!
