Award winners

Congratulations to five young people from Salford who have braved wind, rain and cold to complete their practice and assessed expeditions for their Gold Duke of Edinburgh (D of E) award with Salford Youth Service.

Despite the challenging weather conditions the weekend trip was an outstanding success. The young people showcased their skills in walking, map reading, using a compass,  team work, resilience and communications.

The next stage in their D of E journey will see them young people to travel to London to receive their GOLD award at either St James’s Palace or Buckingham Palace.

Anyone interested in taking part on Salford City Council’s Duke of Edinburgh scheme should contact Dave on dave.eccleston@salford.gov.uk or contact The Beacon Centre on 0161 778 0700
