Rolls Royce in Derby currently employs over 600 apprentices CygqywUWQAACf7R.jpgand 14000 people from Derby. For me this visit reminds me of Kate and Williams tour of Rolls Royce in Singapore on their jubilee tour 151844080.jpgof the Commonwealth in 2012. Williams final stop in Derby was to Padley Centre, A charity which supports vulnerable people in the community with needs such as Homelessness, Mental health issues, and more.Cyg9ddgXcAE8q3A.jpg While there William took part in an arts & crafts session.
