Prince William to visit Sunderland for Centrepoint
Prince William will visit Sunderland and South Shields on Friday in his role as patron of homelessness charity, Centrepoint.

The Duke of Cambridge will tour the Dundas Street centre’s facilities, which were the charity’s first purpose built accommodation, take part in a cooking lesson and talk to young people the charity has helped about the link between youth homelessness and employment.



Later in the day William will officially open the Haven Point leisure centre in South Shields.

The 31-year-old Prince will be shown around the centre where he will see children taking part in the Learn to Swin Programme, speak to talented local swimmers and watch water survival training and resuscitation.

Prince George‘s dad will then attend a Diana Award Inspire Day, speaking to 30 young people taking part in workshops focusing on anti-bullying and employability skills.

It’s been a busy week of engagements for William who stepped out with his wife Kate Middleton on Tuesday as they paid a visit to crime prevention charity, Only Connect.
