2016 is The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award’s Diamond Anniversary year and as part of the celebrations it is encouraging people (of all ages) to take part in the DofE Diamond Challenge.

To kick of the year’s activity, The DofE is holding a launch event in Covent Garden (East Piazza) on Tuesday 12th January.

Come down to Covent Garden and challenge yourself on our 26ft, 360 degree climbing wall.

The wall will be open to the public and free of charge to climb from 10.00 to 16.00.

The day’s challenge will be to see if enough people can climb the wall to equate to a climb up Ben Nevis – the tallest mountain in the UK. There will be a totalizer to track progress throughout the day.

There will be the opportunity to sign up for The DofE Challenge on the day (doing so will also mean automatic entry into a draw to win an iPad mini).

There will be free tea and coffee at 'base camp'.
