I did my Bronze and Silver as school, and discovered that helping other people gives you a different kind of reward. For my Volunteering section we organised a cake sale to raise money for Unicef and smashed our target! Living in a city, it can be difficult to do stuff I thought the DofE would be a great opportunity for me and my friends to do something different. Actually we got absolutely lost and ran out of food – we had to survive on a stale baguette! But, in those moments of pressure, we all supported each other and discovered you’re only as strong as the weakest member of your team.
