Take every opportunity, have no fear, push those boundaries and about all, through ups and downs, don’t lose sight of who you are, right here, right now.

Queen Anne Room – South East
Presenter – Bonita Norris, Mountaineer
“A huge congratulations to you all. I didn’t get the chance to do my own DofE and I didn’t really understand the significance until presenting these awards. Through your Gold DofE you will have had moments where you it’s all gone completely wrong but you’ve gritted your teeth and done it and got here today. Those experiences make you realise you are capable of far more than you imagined.”

“If you want to achieve something extra, give that little bit extra. Get up earlier or go to bed later. Keep doing what you’re doing, you’ve come so far and should be proud of yourself for what you’ve done”.

Afternoon Presentation

Throne Room – North of England
Presenter – Nicola White, Great Britain Field Hockey Player
“To get to the top you have to overcome a lot of hurdles, you’ll know that having done your DofE. I had to believe in myself to make it happen and not give up when I faced failure. Achieving Gold at the Olympics was a dream of mine since I was seven and in 2016 that dream came true in Rio. If you have a passion for something, go for it, you are your own person, don’t copy anyone else. Believe that you can do anything and you will.”

“The DofE is a great way to showcase your talents and stand out from the crowd. The Award is for everyone from all walks of life, no matter what your circumstances are. The DofE is not only recognised by Universities and employers but it makes you challenge yourself. You have to adapt and change but the experience will stay with you and I hope you will use it is a force to take you forward onto bigger and better things in the future.”

Presenter – Helen Scott and Sophie Thornhill, Cyclists
“The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a really special thing. The life skills it has given these young people truly marks them out; they are fantastic examples to others who feel they will never achieve anything. It’s something that we both wish we’d have completed whilst at school; we’re sure the confidence that it would have given us would have helped us immensely when beginning our career as cyclists.”
