Covent Garden is proud to host the launch of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award’s (DofE’s) Diamond Anniversary celebrations on Tuesday 12 January. The Charity is famous for its ethos of improvement through challenge so it’s fitting that the launch involves a climbing wall to help promote the DofE’s biggest campaign of the year The DofE Diamond Challenge – a DofE inspired Challenge for any age where people can undertake a Skill, Adventure or Personal Challenge!
The 25-foot climbing wall will be installed on the East Piazza and the DofE is challenging a number of celebs and members of the public to climb the equivalent height of Ben Nevis before the end of the day. Everyone is welcome to take part – all you need is a pair of comfortable shoes to scale this urban peak!
Why not pop down and see the DofE in its yurt (base camp) where there will be a cup of tea available and a chance to find out more about The DofE and its Diamond Anniversary as well as the chance to win an iPad mini and if you sign up to do a DofE Diamond Challenge by midnight on 12 January.
