Kate and Will have set up a charitable gift fund for those who very generously may wish to donate to charity to help the couple celebrate their wedding.
Having been touched by the goodwill shown them since the announcement of their engagement, Prince William and Miss Middleton have asked that anyone who might wish to give them a wedding gift consider giving instead to a charitable fund.
Donations can be made through the website www.royalweddingcharityfund.org which includes a full list of the charities to benefit, personally chosen by Prince William and Miss Middleton, one of which is the Ocean Youth Trust who have a branch in Hampshire. Ocean Youth Trust offer young people between the ages of 12-25 the opportunity to sail onboard their 72ft training yacht, John Laing.
Having been lucky enough to race the Jolie Brise in the last Tall Ships race that left from London, I am really happy to see William and Kate supporting such a worthwhile charity!
