E Hants November Awards presentation

Twice a year, all those in East Hampshire who have gained a Duke of Edinburgh's Award are invited to a Presentation Evening. Eight young people who had gained awards through our BB Company since last March were invited to attend the recent ceremony in Petersfield.
The Guest of Honour was Tess Burrows, an adventurer and author, who (among other things) has climbed to the furthest point from the centre of the earth (Mt Chimborazo in the Ecuadorian Andes — 6263m) and walked to the South Pole! Her address to the young people was truly inspirational, reminding them that they really can make a difference in this interconnected world.
The photograph shows three of our four Silver recipients at the ceremony, with David Allan of 2nd Alton BB which is a part of Alton Methodist Church.
