Morning Presentation

Throne Room- London
Presenter- Mike Bannister, former Chief Concorde Pilot,

“Achieving your Gold Award is a life moment. I want to congratulate everyone collecting their Awards on their persistence, commitment, determination, effort and energy. You’ve done it! I would now encourage you to give something back, whether that is continuing your volunteering, getting involved with charity work or becoming a DofE Leader, so that others, perhaps less fortunate than you, have the opportunities that you’ve had.”

“During your DofE, you have learnt many lessons and skills that you can take with you into your future and will help maximise your true potential. Hard work, dedication and focus help you to achieve things and it’s carrying on despite difficult circumstances that make you a winner – you will become role models of who will help to inspire others. One person can make a difference to the world and I encourage you all to dream big and achieve great things.”

Presenter- Sir Richard Stilgoe, Songwriter

“You have all done fantastically well and we all congratulate you so much. When you apply for a job, your Gold DofE Award is one of the best things you can have. Remember, moving forward from here, at every point in your life there will be a choice of two roads to travel. Always take the road less travelled, the interesting one. Take the chance, it might work!”

Afternoon Presentation

Throne Room- Yorkshire and Humberside
Presenter- Brian Jones, Aviator

“I’m sure when you started the DofE, you weren’t thinking about sitting in the Throne Room and receiving your award, you were thinking about the programme that lay ahead and focussed on actually doing it. It is through perseverance that you have overcome challenges to achieve your Award, for which we congratulate you. Grab opportunities when they come and good luck!”
