Robert Lloyd Griffiths
Robert, Director of the IOD in Wales raised much needed funds to help the DofE in Wales by climbing the Three Peaks - Snowdon, Cadair Idris and Pen Y Fan. The training was tough, but he and his group managed to complete the Challenge in under 33 hours!
"My target is £6,000 which represents £100 for every one of their 60 years! Over 11,000 young people sign up to the DofE in Wales every year in schools, youth groups, prisons and pupil referral units. The DofE is accessible to all, - a quarter of new participants come from socially excluded/disengaged backgrounds and a number have additional learning needs. The DofE improves self-belief, helps create responsible citizens and promotes leadership - it empowers, motivates, encourages and makes a massive difference."
