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.

Free Up Challenge

Really hard task this one. I gave up chocolate for the whole of July!

Part 3 of my Get Up Challenge

Friday 8th Oct
So not technically on the Saltmarsh Coastal Path, we did this circular walk from Steeple, out onto the Blackwater estuary. We had a lovely lunch, with the calmest water, whilst overlooking Osea Island.

At the end of September, we managed to do this lovely Sunday afternoon walk, just before sunset, walking the Saltmarsh Coastal Path. We walked from the Marsh Farm car park, round the Crouch, and back in land to the Compass Gardens in South Woodham Ferrers.

Part 1 of my Get Up section challenge

Monday 5th Jul
I completed the first part of my Get Up section of my The Duke of Edinburgh's Award Do It 4 Youth challenge yesterday. I've always wanted to see more of where the river goes that is 200m from my house, so yesterday we dusted off our walking boots, and walked 5.5 miles from North Fambridge to Althorne on the Saltmarsh Coastal Path. The scenery was amazing, and who knew this was on my doorstep? If you would like to help me with the fundraising part of the challenge, you can donate at https://events.dofe.org/fundraisers/tinawing/do-it-4-youth

Thank you to my Sponsors
