Our scheme to provide boots for youngsters on the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme is up and er… walking !
The DPA has provided a £600 fund to buy boots for students at Westlands School who would otherwise have found it very difficult to fund this purchase. The eight students are now training on Dartmoor to complete their expeditions later this year.
The scheme is the pilot phase of a larger project for which we hope to attract further funds from the Heritage Lottery Fund. If successful, next year we will be able to enlarge the scheme and include other schools and organisations.
