On Monday 16 April, The Queen bought the year's first Mayflower pin, as is traditional.
This year, Christoffer Jahnberg from class 5 at Johanneberg School and Jessica Ibrahim from class 6 at Vättnedal School, both of which are in Gothenburg, had the honour of selling the first Mayflower pin to The Queen. The Mayflower Charity Foundation for Children is Sweden's biggest children's charity. The organisation works to improve conditions for children, and to tackle child poverty in Sweden. The Queen is the organisation's highest patron, and buys the first Mayflower pin every year. Find out more about the work of the Mayflower Charity Foundation for Children here.
