Statement by UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake on the life of Goodwill Ambassador Sir Roger Moore

NEW YORK, 23 May 2017 – “With the passing of Sir Roger Moore, the world has lost one of its great champions for children – and the entire UNICEF family has lost a great friend. In his most famous roles as an actor, Sir Roger was the epitome of cool sophistication; but in his work as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, he was a passionate – and highly persuasive – advocate for children. He once said that it was up to all of us to give children a more peaceful future. Together with Lady Kristina, he worked very hard to do so.

“All of us at UNICEF extend our deepest sympathies to the Moore family, and join his many friends and admirers from around the world in paying tribute to his life and mourning his loss. He will be deeply missed.”

Note to editors: 

Sir Roger Moore, KBE, was one of UNICEF’s longest serving Goodwill Ambassadors.

Sir Roger, a popular British film, television and stage actor, perhaps best known for his portrayal of Simon Templar in The Saint and as secret agent James Bond, was introduced to UNICEF by the late Audrey Hepburn. “My curiosity got the better of me after Audrey Hepburn introduced me to UNICEF,” he said. “I wanted to find out more than just the facts and figures.” He was appointed a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador on 9 August 1991.

Sir Roger’s first mission for UNICEF was to Central America, where he visited projects for children in Costa Rica, El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala. Over the years, his work with UNICEF also took him to Brazil, Ghana, Jamaica, Indonesia, Korea, Japan, Netherlands, Kazakhstan, Slovenia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Philippines and Mexico. He brought attention to the desperate conditions facing some of the world’s most vulnerable children and was a compelling voice on issues such as children’s rights, HIV/AIDS, landmine injuries, child labour and iodine deficiency.

In November 2012 Sir Roger was presented with the first-ever UNICEF UK Lifetime Achievement Award which then became the Roger Moore Lifetime Achievement Award in celebration of his dedication to UNICEF, both as a generous fundraiser and a global advocate for children’s rights. On receiving the award, Sir Roger said “I am perhaps best known for my role as Bond, but my role as Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF is the one I am certainly most passionate about. It is beyond doubt that it’s the children and dedicated staff on the ground who deserve medals, but I am absolutely honored and would like to thank UNICEF for this truly humbling award.”

Sir Roger Moore was devoted to serving the world’s children for over 25 years and remained dedicated to UNICEF right up until his death.

Welcome to The Athenaeum

EE4A9753-Athenaeum_TR.jpg

“Welcome Home!” was the warm and breezy greeting we received as we stepped into the cosy and luxurious surroundings that is The Athenaeum Hotel & Residences. Perfectly positioned and located overlooking the beautiful and leafy grounds of Green Park, the sumptuous Athenaeum Hotel  is a chic haven in London’s Mayfair.

kkone

It is a short stroll from the best shops, restaurants, West End theaters, Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park, and access to transport facilities are second to none.  Although it is seemingly a beautiful and indeed modern property, it is a building steeped in history. It was originally built in 1850 as a private residence that became a high society Gentleman’s Club during the Victorian era, and was transformed into a five-star hotel many many decades later.  Celebrities who have stayed at this hotel include Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Harrison Ford, Sandra Bullock and even Kim Kardashian West and husband Kanye West.
Galvin

A jewel in the crown of The Athenaeum is its wonderful Galvin Restaurant by Michelin-starred chefs Chris and Jeff Galvin, where you will also be met by warm and welcoming waiting staff.  We ordrered for starters the Cornish Fish Soup served with grated cheese and rouille and the Everleigh Farm Asparagus, for the main course we tried the Cumbrian Pork Chops served with red love apples and for dessert the apple tart with cider brandy cream,  – simply divine!   All helpings were generous and tasted second to none – we left truly satisfied.

Park View Room

The Guest rooms and residences were chic and modern, with their stylish London-inspired furnishings (we loved the very cool portrait of David Beckham outside our room), also the fun pieces of art in different nooks and crannies added a touch of cool quirkiness.  The beds were dreamingly comfortable, and generally the rooms was filled with every aspect of furnishings that you would expect from a luxury 5 star establishment.  We were also blessed with a wonderful unique view over looking the gorgeous Green Park.

After enjoying all the fabulous amenities the hotel had to offer, we had a little time to make the most  of the property’s gym and spa facilities which include cardio machines and strength training equipment. There were also hot tubs, sauna, steam room, and a relaxation area, everything a fitness fan could desire.

The term “home from home” with added extraordinary luxuries really sums up the feeling you get with your stay at The Athenaeum.  As we departed the property, we were simultaneously checking our diaries to see when we would be able to reschedule another visit..

Highly recommended and truly a special experience, make time for The Athenaneum – welcome home!
