I’m fundraising for The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

Hi, I’m Patrick! I'm taking on a challenge and fundraising for the DofE in support of young people across the UK.

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.

Below are the challenges I will be completing: 

Get Up: The physical One - Cycle 10k per week. 

Skill Up: The technical one - Learn to code every weekday for 4 weeks. This will involve plan is to do 20 minutes per day - this can make a big difference. 

Free Up: The willpower one - Go phone-free for a week. This will take a lot of willpower as it plays a big part in my everyday life. 

Hand Up: The community one - I already devote my Sundays to God by volunteering at the church every week. I will continue to do this!
