Getting more people involved in DofE

Back in 2016, Girlguiding members took on the Diamond Challenge.

Together you raised an amazing £31,00 for DofE. This was  match-funded by DofE and the #iwill foundation, as part of the DofE’s initiative to get more disadvantaged young people doing their DofE.

For more information, see our blog on the Diamond Fund.
