I’m fundraising for The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award
I'm taking on a challenge and fundraising for the DofE in support of young people across the UK.
I'm going to take a crack at all four sections of the Do It 4 Youth Challenge:
- Skill Up - Circus Skills - because who doesn't look cool when they're juggling or spinning plates?!
- Free Up - Although I know I will struggle, I am going to give up my smart phone for a week and revert to a good old Nokia! As a society, we have technology at our fingertips and at times I feel bound to my phone. It will be a challenge given everything I use my phone for - but I'm up for it!
- Get Up - This is a challenge for me because I love sports and fitness so I wanted to challenge myself in a different way. So, over the course of four weeks, I am going to explore and try at least six different types of exercise which I wouldn't usually do. I'm a real creature of habit so switching up my fitness regime will really test me. I'll update along the way!
The DofE help young people build life-long belief in themselves, supporting them to take on their own challenges, follow their passions, and discover talents they never knew they had. Because when you prove to yourself that you’re ready for anything, nothing can hold you back.
The COVID-19 pandemic has left the UK’s youth facing more challenges than ever. As young people come out of lockdown, the DofE offers any and every young person the chance to build life-long skills and belief regardless of ability, interest or background. To feel able to do anything, achieve anything and overcome anything life throws their way, whatever their circumstance.
We're raising funds for the DofE so disadvantaged young people can take part in the DofE and build life-long belief in themselves and be ready for anything.
Please donate and help make a huge difference to young people who wouldn’t otherwise have access to the life-changing benefits of the DofE.
