Gold DofE Congratulations to OCs

Congratulations to the Old Cats who attended their Duke of Edinburgh’s Gold Award Presentation at St James Palace this week!

With three progressive levels, the Gold Award is the pinnacle of the programme and requires two self-sufficient expeditions in the hills of South Wales for four days and three nights walking for 7 to 8 hours each day. This is in addition to a full year of voluntary work plus six to twelve months of a skill and physical activity for at least one hour a week. Whilst the awards require significant commitment from each individual, they offer a life changing experience and the opportunity to develop key essential skills for life and work.

The award was presented to the Old Cats by HRH the Earl of Wessex.
