The Duke of Edinburgh award is a fantastic experience & changes many people’s lives

With the news of Prince Philip retiring today, a short post on the DofE Award which thanks to Prince Philip and an ongoing army of brilliant volunteers who give up large sections of their lives to enable young people to prepare for many aspects of their adult life and experience the outdoors in a way they may not have had before.

We often get students at our club who help out as part of the volunteering aspect as well as get fit for the expeditions.

Whatever one’s opinion of the Royal Family, the support has helped generations and they should be very proud.
