“If you lined up a group of young people you can tell who’s achieved a DofE Award. They’re enthusiastic, committed and tenacious. Doing my DofE changed my destiny; not only did it help me engineer opportunities in my life, it also helped me to embrace and make a success of them. Don’t let go of the DofE and it won’t let go of you, keep going on your journey and be proud of being a DofE Gold Award Holder.”

Entrée Room – Central England
Presenter- Chris Hollins, TV Presenter

“In TV I meet people from all walks of life that promise they will make a difference but there are very few people that do. You, on the other hand, consciously chose to do your DofE and have had the astonishing discipline to stick at it to Gold and make that difference, to yourself, your families and your communities. Please don’t stop now, keep using the skills you’ve learnt, interests you’ve unearthed and volunteering for others. Your Gold Award will make a huge difference when applying for jobs. Don’t forget what you’ve achieved, it’ll serve you well for the rest of your lives.”
