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.

My Updates

I finished the Do it 4 Youth! 😃

Sunday 18th Jul

Hello everyone! ^_^ I am very happy to announce that I have finished my four challenges for the ‘Do it 4 Youth’ challenge. This week was my last week and for my community challenge, I visited my 90 year old Grandma who lives alone everyday to have a chat and to give her some company. Don’t worry though, because even though my challenge is over, I am going to carry on seeing her often. Thank you all for your support and sponsorships! ( $ _ $ )

Ronaldo agrees with me!

No Sugary Drinks for a Week!

Sunday 11th Jul
This week, my 3rd week of 'Do it 4 Youth', I have successfully managed to not have any sugary drinks for a WHOLE WEEK. This was very difficult because my sister gave me a drink and I had to throw it down the drain :( This coming week (for my community challenge), I will be visiting my 90 year old Grandma who lives alone every day.

I learnt an instrument! 😃

Sunday 4th Jul
Over the course of this past week, I have been learning an instrument... (Drum Roll) THE TIN WHISTLE! Unlike the last challenge, I had to practice. I would upload a video of me playing it, but the website won't let me so here's a picture instead..
Thanks and please send some sponsors! ( ͡• ͜ʖ ͡• )

Our route!
