Thank you Heritage Canada
We here at The Duke of Ed would like to extend a big, heartfelt thank you to Heritage Canada for their support in allowing 100 youth to come together at this year’s LEAD event. The atmosphere at LEAD was transformative – one look at our camp recaps and images , and you can see how this donation has made a difference in the lives of the participants, and the magnitude of what this does in forging the leaders of tomorrow. While everyone enjoyed the sun and fresh air with various outdoor activities, participants also took part in workshops that assisted in their leadership development. Two of the workshops specifically focused on embracing our Canadian Heritage. And that’s the true meaning behind being Canadian, isn’t it? Sharing, and working together to create a country that we can all be proud of. Thank you Heritage Canada for sharing this experience with The Duke of ED 2016 LEAD campers.
To celebrate 60 years of the Duke of Ed, HRH The Countess of Wessex is cycling with a team of seven people 445 miles from from Holyroodhouse Palace in Edinburgh to Buckingham Palace in London in seven days. She is raising money through the DofE Diamond Challenge for the UK Award’s work with disadvantage and vulnerable young people. Before her training, The Countess had never been on a road bike before. When speaking to Rhiannon Mills of Sky News she admitted that she feels "Nervous, very nervous. Quite terrified." That is the crux of the Diamond Challenge. While her biking is a money raising effort, it is also an extension of an Award that encourages you to rise above your fears to excel in areas that you’ve yet to explore. It is through these new challenges that we discover the most about ourselves as individuals.
