SHERBORNE CADET ACHIEVES HIS SILVER DOFE AWARD
Cpl Hayden King of Sherborne Detachment was presented with his Silver Duke of Edinburgh Certificate recently.
Having already achieved his Bronze he was keen to take on the next level. For his volunteering he chose to mentor the younger cadets at his detachment and was involved in teaching and supporting them through their basic level. Being very sporty the Physical section involved him improving his fitness levels whilst competing in various events. Cpl King represented the South West ACF Region at Football where they won the National Championship (beating Wales, Scotland and East England on the way). He also completed a 300 mile cycling challenge (top 20 out of 400 cyclists) and came second in the Regional Cross Country (16th Nationally), a superb achievement.
He took on the digital skills enterprise "idea" award (www.idea.org.uk) for his skill section, learning all about coding, GIF making and cyber safety. Finally for his assessed expedition he took part in a 3 day 2 night journey across South Dorset with his group. The team found out lots of historical facts about the area as their aim for this expedition.
Watch this space as Cpl King is embarking on the highest level of the award and is now working towards GOLD!
Congratulations Cpl King
