“When I started the DofE I was excited because it was never something I would have thought of doing but after it all started it was amazing! Helping the homeless was one of many things we did and it made me feel that no matter how small or big everything helps. Also, we did yoga. At first I couldn’t stand the thought of it but after I enjoyed it. My favourite part was I got to work with horses for my skills section. All of these things were all part of the build up to the big walk and camp. I was never a walker but I did it and had many laughs and many funny memories along the way which will never be forgotten” Demi Lane, 2018.
