Chenderit would like to extend its deepest condolences on the news of the passing of HRH, The Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip.

 Mr Hindley has received the following message from the Duke of Edinburgh's Award scheme which he has asked to be shared:

 "The Duke had a lifelong commitment to inspiring, empowering and developing young people, and in setting up The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, he has helped transform the lives of millions of young people worldwide.

In the 65 years since His Royal Highness founded the charity, the need for the DofE has never been greater, with young people facing unprecedented challenges and an uncertain future due to COVID-19.

The DofE will continue the remarkable legacy of His Royal Highness, working to make sure that all young people – and especially those from marginalised groups – can benefit from the better educational outcomes, employment prospects, community ties and stronger mental health the DofE can help support."

Chenderit Silver and Gold applicants - more information about this summer's expeditions will be shared over the coming weeks. As restrictions ease, and temperatures rise, what a moment to remember the world's longest serving consort.
