Duke of Edinburgh’s Diamond Challenge 2016

Congratulations to two Year 11 students  – Harry Redfern and Josh Atkinson who have received their DofE Diamond Challenge 2016 Pin. This is a special award this year only as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award celebrate their Diamond Anniversary.

They each had to raise a minimum of £60 for the DofE Charity and complete a challenge that would not be easy to them.

I spoke with Harry earlier and he excelled! – He raised £2000 by doing the Coast to Coast Challenge (142 miles!) He is donating £1000 to Rainbows and £1000 is going towards a trip he will make next summer to Tanzania where he will be involved in community development work, wildlife conservation, environmental conservation and a personal challenge – to complete a PADI Open Water Diving Course.

Well done to both students!
