This year, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) is celebrating it's Diamond (60th) anniversary. To mark this milestone, the organisation is encouraging people to undertake a personal challenge, and complete the DofE Diamond challenge.
Despite spending hundreds of hours in Snowdonia supervising over 150 young people doing their Gold DofE expeditions and walking many other peaks in the area i have never been up the highest mountain in Wales. So on 21st December, the shortest day of the year i will be going up, with the short daylight hours, likely temperature at the summit well into minus figures and a high chance of snow cover this should be an amazing and challenging first ascent.
The DofE Diamond Challenge…
The Duke of Edinburgh's Award is the world’s leading youth achievement award, giving millions of 14 – 24 year olds the opportunity to develop work-ready skills, and increase employment opportunities by gaining skills to add to their CV. JLGB runs a kosher and Shabbat friendly DofE provision that meet the religious and cultural needs of Jewish young people, removing all barriers for the successful completion of their award.
Please give generously and together we will be able to give young people the once in a lifetime opportunity we have all benefited from. Thank you in advance from us all!
