The Prince of Wales visited the warehouse where charity workers package the goods before they are delivered to other charities in need of further funding.

The Prince and the charity workers burst into laughter as the task proved unexpectedly difficult due to a defiant tape dispenser.

The Prince of Wales quipped "If you can't do it, I certainly can't."

As the gun finally began to work he finished sealing the box by adding the sound effects "weeeee" much to the amusement of all of the charity workers.

'In Kind Direct' takes orders from almost 6,000 charity and community organisations, including Sunfield in Stourbridge, a residential special school that helps those with learning difficulties.
