Today, (November 14, 2018) The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent the morning in South Yorkshire for two engagements. For their first stop they visited McLaren Automotive where they opened the new Composites Technology Centre in Rotherham. The new centre will be used to innovate the process of designing and constructing lightweight carbon fibre ‘tubs’, which form the internal shell of all McLaren cars, providing 200 new jobs for the local area. while there The Duke and Duchess met with McLaren Automotive’s STEM Ambassadors, who work to encourage children to get involved in science-based learning and careers.
From there the couple traveled to Barnsley to visit Centrepoint, the UK’s leading charity for homeless young people. The Duke and Duchess joined volunteers and young people that use the service, to prepare lunch in the hostel’s kitchen before sitting down to learn about the new Andy Norman Learning Hub, which will provide a dedicated space and resource for young people at risk of homelessness in Barnsley, helping improve their skills and work towards independence. Before departing William and Catherine unveiled a plaque offically opening the Andy Norman Learning Hub.
