NEW COLLEGE LEICESTER AT ST JAMES' PALACE

New College Leicester were invited to St James’ Palace to celebrate becoming a newly licensed organisation for The Duke of Edinburgh Award.   At the Palace DofE Manager, Mr Hepworth-Adcock, met a group of young people with their parents who were there to receive their Gold award from HRH The Earl of Wessex, Prince Edward.

Journalist John Sergeant presented Mr Hepworth-Adcock with New College’s framed licence signed by the Duke of Edinburgh. Looking back on the day Mr Hepworth-Adcock commented: “It was a privilege to witness young people being presented with their Gold Award and to have the opportunity to meet HRH The Earl of Wessex. This type of commitment and resilience is exactly what we are about at New College Leicester. I am extremely proud to be supporting my new participants through their Bronze award and hope to see them go on to achieve their Gold award at the palace one day”.
