We are thrilled to announce that three of our dedicated Explorer Scouts, Paige, Sneha and Raina, have recently completed the first part of their Duke of Edinburgh’s Award journey, earning their Bronze Award. Their hard work, perseverance, and dedication to personal development and community service over the past year has been recognised, and tonight, we celebrated and presented them with their certificates and badges.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, it’s a renowned program that empowers young people to develop essential skills, experience adventure, and give back to their communities. Divided into different levels – Bronze, Silver, Gold – the award challenges participants to engage in a variety of activities, including volunteering, physical fitness, skill development, and adventurous expeditions.

Along with most of the Explorers in their cohort, Paige, Sneha and Raina all volunteer as Explorer Scout Young Leaders with our younger sections. They’ve taken on a personal challenge, and have learned a new skill during the process. While they all faced challenges along the way, they met them all with determination and resilience.

Our thanks, as ever, go out to our incredible volunteers that help run our Explorer Scout Unit, and mentor our young leaders, and our congratulations to Paige, Raina, and Sneha for their outstanding achievement of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Bronze Award. Their dedication, perseverance, and commitment to personal development serve as an inspiration to us all.
