Queen Anne Room – Central England
Presenter – Heston Blumenthal OBE, Celebrity Chef

Heston told the Gold Award holders: “The DofE is an amazing experience for young people to take part in – not only do you gain a sense of achievement, you also learn a lot about yourself and what you’re capable of. With technology increasingly reducing our patience levels and arguably isolating us from the physical world, the DofE is an important cornerstone of young adulthood that allows you to express yourself, believe in yourself and build confidence. The DofE is a time to be human, feel the sunshine on your skin and hear the breeze, to make a difference to the community you live in. Everyone who participates really deserves their Award and that’s a great feeling to have.”

Josh told the Gold Award holders: “It is an honour to be stood in front of you all. Remember that the journey matters more than the destination. The characteristics, the traits and the values that you’ve all learnt along the way will stay with you through life. Congratulations and well done!”

The Award will be with you for the rest of your life.”
