Congratulations to Mccauley earning his Gold Duke of Edinburgh award, which is the third and most challenging of the '' awards!
His final expedition was five days long and took place in the Peak District, where he walked every day and camped in a tent. When we asked him what special equipment he took with him for his award expedition, he said "two first aid kits and lots of socks!"
Through DofE, Macc has met lots of new friends and learnt new skills like map reading and how to use a compass.
The adventures don’t stop there either! Macc is now volunteering for DofE, assessing people for their Bronze and Silver awards.
