Discovery / D of E Challenges
|Group Organiser:||John Cork|
The Discovery Award scheme is similar to the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme but for the over 50s. Participants undertake challenges to learn more about themselves discover new talents and rediscover old ones. There are gold, silver and bronze awards available in four sections: hobby or interest, physical recreation, journey of discovery and service in the community.
The award was named after the ship which carried the explorer Ernest Shackleton on his Antarctic expeditions.
