Sunil Panchal – Bronze & Silver award holder
During my time with the fantastic team at Peterborough Open Awards Centre (POAC), I have completed Bronze and Silver DofE award retrospectively. The community has benefited from me doing DofE via my sections as I have provided a service for Sue Ryder (charity shop) and helped with all aspects, from the shop floor to sorting out donations.
Also, I have personally gained dearly from accomplishing DofE. I have enhanced my communication skills and teamwork attributes which is vital if you want to complete DofE. Furthermore, I have improved my leadership skills which will help me throughout life when I am required to take lead in certain situations. Moreover, I have learnt how to be resilient and deal with problems in unsatisfying situations. The DofE experience has helped me see surrounding situations in a much more positive way.
I would highly recommend anyone of any age to participate in the DofE scheme.
Aicha Sebtane – Bronze & Silver award holder
I achieved both my bronze and silver DofE award, this included me gaining a variety of skills and experience from learning piano, doing dance lessons to volunteering at Little Miracles and my local museum! Throughout carrying out the awards I got to meet some amazing people, as well as boosting my confidence and facing new challenges (such as the final exhibition). I couldn’t recommend DofE enough, not only does it look impressive to obtain but you have so much fun whilst benefiting the community as well!
