18 young people complete Gold Duke of Edinburgh's Award expedition
Andrew undertook the assessor's role for 4 expedition groups, involving 18 young people, undertaking their Duke of Edinburgh Gold award.
The young people spent four days in the Northumberland Cheviot Hills, completing a journey on foot that they had planned themselves, taking them from Wooler to Alwinton. Andrew's role as assessor meant he ensured the young people achieved the 20 conditions required of them to achieve the Award. That included the young people being entirely self-sufficient throughout, carrying all their own equipment and food, and camping out in tents.
The expedition was reported in the Northumberland Gazette newspaper.
