Cornerstone House Centre expresses it deep sadness and sorrow at the death of Her Majesty The Queen, joining together with people in Greater Cumbernauld and across the country in a time of national mourning.
Paying tribute to Her Majesty, who died peacefully on Thursday 8 September 2022 at the age of 96 at her Aberdeenshire residence Balmoral Castle, Cornerstone House Centre Development Manager Mary McNeil said:
“The Board of Directors, staff and volunteers at Cornerstone House Centre offer sincere condolences to The Royal Family on what is a very sad day for our nation after the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.
“Cornerstone House Centre, like thousands of community organisations across the country, is deeply grateful to Her Majesty for her tireless commitment to so many charitable causes and helping those in need.
“Today we particularly remember the support she gave to communities in Cumbernauld, which included a visit to the town in her 1977 Silver Jubilee tour and more recently an appearance at Greenfaulds High School in 2019.
“Throughout her reign Her Majesty brought wisdom, stability and peace, and was a positive force for good throughout. The Queen has been a constant, reassuring and positive part of all our lives. For many of us, there has been no other Monarch.
“The Queen ruled for longer than any other Monarch in British history, and was a much loved and respected figure across the world. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother and a person of great Christian faith.”
The organisation pledges support and loyalty to His Majesty King Charles III as he accedes to the throne and continues on the good work undertaken by The Queen of more than 70 years.
