Many of the usual Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) activities have been cancelled as a result of Coronavirus.

World leading youth charity, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, is keen to ensure that the coronavirus doesn’t mean DofE achievments needs to stop – far from it. It works with organisations across the UK to help young people gain essential skills, experience, confidence and resilience to successfully navigate adult life. It has published information about how to keep working towards the Award.

Following on from our earlier report on #DofEWithADifference, Fourth Year student Anish put his baking skills to the test and shared a photo of his banana bread. This was baked as part of his ongoing DofE award, which he is still working on during lockdown, along with many other Trinity students.

“Doesn’t it look delicious!” says Ms Benzinski, Head of DofE.

If you can, it’s important to stay healthy and active during this time and continuing with your DofE activities can help with this – even if you’re not attending your usual meetings. It’s not all hiking and camping. Activities can include fitness challenges, online courses, learning to bake or sew, or virtual volunteering, amongst many others.

Anish’s bakes are certainly whetting our appetite!
