Amy’s golden trip to Buckingham Palace

18-year-old Culcheth girl was one of 1,000 young people from across the UK invited to celebrate the Diamond Anniversary of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) and attend a very special, once in a life time, Gold Award Presentation at Buckingham Palace.

Amy Kadodwala received her Gold Award from DofE celebrity supporter Chris Hadfield, Canadian astronaut, and had the opportunity to share her DofE experiences with the charity’s patron – The Duke of Edinburgh.
The DofE is celebrating its Diamond Anniversary throughout this year, having supported millions of young people in the UK and across the globe to achieve DofE Awards since it was founded in 1956. The prestigious Gold Award Presentation at Buckingham Palace is one of many memorable events taking place to celebrate 60 years of the charity.
Members of the Royal Family – The Duke of Edinburgh, The Earl of Wessex and The Countess of Wessex, congratulated those present including young Gold Award achievers, organisations that deliver the DofE and special guests such as corporate supporters and DofE Diamond Challengers, who have set themselves a personal challenge to raise money for the charity in its anniversary year.
