DofE Women in Business Committee

We're fundraising to support young people through the DofE

The DofE Women in Business committee, chaired by HRH the Countess of Wessex, are fundraising for the DofE in support of young people​ from the toughest backgrounds across the UK.

This year McLaren have joined forces with the DofE WiB Committee helping to promote the charity and encouraging their fans to take part in this year’s challenge event, Do It 4 Youth, and raise money for the charity. To celebrate the partnership, we will be cycling ​306km the distance of the British Grand Prix and attempting to beat Lando Norris’ race time of 1 hour 58 mins 51 secs. We will be cycling​ as a team and will be joined by ​young people currently working towards their DofE Award.

We're raising funds for the DofE so disadvantaged young people, from the toughest backgrounds, can take part in the DofE and build life-long belief in themselves and be ready for anything.

The DofE help young people build self-confidence, supporting them to take on their own challenges, follow their passions, and discover talents they never knew they had. The DofE nurtures skills like teamwork that are vital on the world of business. By taking part in the DofE you prove to yourself that you’re ready for anything and 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 circumstances.

Just £50 could train one volunteer so they can support more disabled young people to do their DofE or £160 could pay for a tent and sleeping bag so that a young person facing financial hardship can do their expedition. 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. ​
