The Duke of Edinburgh's Award  A youth charity that offers the world's leading achievement award.

The #DofEAdventure is your chance to experience the wonder that is a DofE Expedition, as a team or take on the task solo. Find your adventurous side in the #PeakDistrict this September and help support the #DofE Charity. Use code ADV20 to get 20% off registration before midnight Tuesday.

Heidi was the very first to sign up for the #DofEAdventure, our epic hike in the Peak District: "I injured my knee during an outdoor pursuits trip in October 2015. I've come to realise that physical fitness must not be taken for granted and want to make the most of being active again. It's been a long road to getting better and I'm still not quite there yet. But I've been told that the hard work I'm putting into my physio will be rewarded with a full recovery. I signed up for the DofE Adventure to celebrate, as well as to give myself a goal to ensure I get fully fit again. My motivation is proving to myself, and others, that I can and will do it. I also want to raise money for the DofE because I've been a DofE expedition supervisor for six years and know what a difference it makes to our students. Having never had the opportunity myself, and knowing that I would have benefited a great deal, I wanted to help disadvantaged students have this chance." Join Heidi and 1,500 others on 30 Sept and 1 Oct: Sign up now at and use code ADV20 to get 20% off before midnight Tuesday.

Are you struggling to fill the gap now you've completed you #DofE? Here's how Gold Award holder Alysha solved the problem: "There was nothing to compare to taking part in DofE until the Diamond Challenge was launched last year. I'm now a teacher and run the DofE in my school. This was the ideal opportunity to raise money for the Charity and get other staff involved so they could see what students have to do. My team of 16 staff, family and a Bronze Award student walked the entire two-day Bronze expedition route. Between us we raised around £1,000 and all the staff then fully appreciated what these students had to achieve. "I'm now planning a DofE Challenge for 2017 and arranging for a staff trip again. It is amazing that there is opportunity for those of us now over 25 still to be able to take part!".
