The youth homelessness charity Centrepoint has brought the relaunch of its website forward to tomorrow so it can mark this week's marriage of its patron Prince William to Kate Middleton.

The charity had originally intended to unveil the new-look site in the summer, but moved the date forward to coincide with the royal wedding and to capitalise on public interest.

It said it hoped the site, which has been designed by the digital agency Public Zone, will lead to an increase in fundraising and volunteering.

The site will also feature video footage and images of Prince William's involvement with the charity.

Jonathan Simmons, managing director of Public Zone, said the launch was happening this week because Prince William was a "huge asset" to the charity.

"Previously, all roads on the site led to fundraising, but the new site tells the story of Centrepoint and gives visitors lots of options," Simmons said.
