Favourite memory of the Award:
My favorite memory from the award was the way we bonded as a group and found new ways to motivate ourselves within nature. How we stopped to admire views when we reached the top of Hillend how we adapted without technology. I remember before we started our gold award we sang you can't stop the beat to motivate us to walk for the duration and eveytime we were struggling it became our motivation song.
Biggest challenge from doing the Award:
Learning to navigate during our expedition. I remember on bronze we had the map on upside down and couldn't read a campass so we went in the completely opposite direction for 2 hours before we hit a motorway and called our leaders. We had to walk another two hours back to the start and at that point we were ready to give up. I am so glad I stuck with it, eventually learned how to map read and use a compass and now have just gone on to receive my Gold Award.

This is my Gold Award ceremony. I had been a two years since we'd all finished university and it was pouring down with rain but we couldn't be happier to receive our Awards
