Picture Gallery – Central England
Presenter – Oliver and James Phelps, Actors

Oliver Phelps: “Doing the Harry Potter films meant that we never got the chance to do our own DofE so I am very jealous of all of you for achieving yours. You now have the skills and experience to know that you can go on to do anything you set your mind to.”

James Phelps: “When I was in New Zealand I met a group of young people who were due to receive their Gold Awards in a couple of weeks’ time and it made me realise just what a huge, world-wide Award it is. They inspired me to do my own Diamond challenge, which included 4 bungee jumps- one off the tallest building in New Zealand!”

Afternoon Presentation

Throne Room – South West
Presenter – Mr Phil Burgess, Rugby Sevens Player

“Congratulations to you all. The hard work and dedication it took to get here has all been worth it. Continue to do what you love, find your passion and it will drive you no end.”

Queen Anne Room – Northern Ireland
Presenter – Mr Richard Chambers, Olympic Rower

“Having achieved my trilogy of DofE Awards, I know the agony you have gone through to get here today. What you have achieved is very special and don’t underestimate how much the skills you’ve developed will be transferable in your life. Congratulations!”

Picture Gallery – North of England
Presenter – Miss Natalie Coyle, Opera Singer

“Having a Gold Award shows you have courage, motivation and can work as part of a team. I’m a Gold Award holder myself and I did singing for my Skills section, which was the first step on my career path. It was amazing to meet other Gold Award holders today and hear their own stories. Congratulations!”
