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.
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.
During July I will be completing four challenges.
My challenges will include:
I will complete at least 3 x 5K runs (having struggled to run for 1 minute in May)
I will make Sticky Toffee Pudding for at least 30 people
I will not eat Chocolate or Crisps (I love wotsits)
I will pick litter up from the country lanes near my home for at least an hour every Sunday during July.
DO IT FOR YOUTH Challenge completed!!Monday 2nd Aug
Free Up Completed 31st July 2021Monday 2nd Aug No chocolate or crisps Free up challenge completed! Not as difficult as I thought, I might keep up with not eating chocolate but I celebrated on Sunday with a packet of Wotsits (just a smaller bag though) Share

Ninth 5K completed on 28th July 2021!!!!!!!!!Wednesday 28th Jul
Eighth 5k Completed on 26th July 2021!!!!!!!!Monday 26th Jul
Litter pick completed 25.07.21Monday 26th Jul Completed the challenge - 1 Hour every Sunday in July collected litter. What I learnt; 1) car drivers drive too fast on country lanes and like to use their horns, 2) There are like minded people who also want to keep where they live litter free and joined me on 3 occasions, 3) most of the litter I collected was able to be recycled so went straight into my recycle bin and 4) the most common piece of litter I collected was fast food rubbish.... I also think I will continue to litter pick (maybe not every Sunday) but once a month with other people from my area. This challenge has supported me in meeting people where I live who also want to make a difference within their local community! Share
