The Duchess of Cornwall will visit the new outreach centre of a hospice providing vital services to local communities.

Camilla will tour Prospect Hospice's new facility at Savernake Hospital in the Wiltshire market town of Marlborough, which gives care and support to patients, carers and families dealing with terminal illness.

The local community rallied together and raised the target total of £260,000 in under four months and the centre's doors were opened in October last year.

During the visit the Duchess, who is the hospice's president, will meet some of the fundraisers who supported the campaign as well as staff, patients, carers and families who are now using the new facilities.

Camilla will also visit Forest and Sandridge Church of England Primary School, in the nearby town of Melksham to officially open its new building.

Work on the new school began in October 2014 and was completed last September, in time for the start of the new school year.

The Duchess will tour the new facilities, meeting staff and students along the way and her visit will end with Camilla attending a school assembly.

The Duchess of Cornwall will be at Cheltenham races today.

Her Royal Highness will present the trophy to the winning owner, jockey and trainer of the Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase, the feature race of Ladies day.

I am delighted that The Duchess of Cornwall will again be attending this year's Festival on Ladies Day.

Last year, she presented the prize to the Preston family whose horse, Sire De Grugy, won the race. Sire De Grugy was trained by Gary Moore and ridden by his son Jamie.

The scenes in the Winner's Enclosure after Sire De Grugy won the Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase were some of the best of the week and this year's race is shaping up to be as competitive as ever.
