Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Presentation Evenings

Tash Bright No Comment

Young people from across the city have been collecting their Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards at Presentation Evenings over the last few weeks, with one more event to come next week. The team at Sheffield Futures are very grateful for the support of schools across the city helping young people to achieve their awards.

Completing a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award at any level is an incredible achievement. It involves hard work, giving back to your community, volunteering your time, being a team player and so much more.

Cllr Denise Fox congratulated the groups on Monday 4th March, she said: “Congratulations to you all, I never had the opportunity to do the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and learn all the skills that can help you get on in life. The skills you all have learnt now are lifelong and will help you in your next step in your lives, perhaps getting a job or going to university. When I was Lord Mayor, I met many employers and they were all looking for something different to set candidates out from the rest. Duke of Edinburgh’s Award will certainly do that.”

Deputy Lord Mayor Tony Downing congratulated the attendees on Monday 11th March. He said: “Completing your Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a fantastic achievement!”
