Saunton Sands SLSC on way to Silver Success!

SLSGB has been a National Operating Authority for the Duke of Edinburgh Awards now for the last two years and is very excited to announce that Saunton Sands is proving itself as a flagship club when it comes to DofE. Saunton have now enrolled 6 of their youth members onto their Silver DofE Awards and this participants will now be working hard to gain their Silver Awards, this will include completing volunteering hours, taking part in skill and physical activities to culminate in a 3 day/2 night expedition in September. These members will be able to do this through the Surf Life Saving activity they already do at their club,DofE logo Surf Life Saving Great Britain but also try new things to form part of their sections if they want to expand their skills and knowledge.
The DofE Awards will give members the opportunity to be the very best they can be, helping them to gain valuable skills, have incredible experiences and make friends for life. DofE is open to anyone aged 14 to 24 (not just fans of the great outdoors), the DofE encourages teamwork and social interaction and helps young people to stand out from the crowd when applying for university and jobs. If your club wishes to become a DofE Centre and deliver DofE awards through your activity in the club contact Mark on mturner@slsgb.org.uk to find out more…

We wish the Saunton Sands Silver Participants the best of luck in achieving this prestigious award. Keep your eyes peeled for updates on their adventures…
