Thanks to our cooperation with the British Chamber of Commerce, we can regularly participate in events promoting British culture and companies in the regions of the Czech Republic. These events usually include a raffle whose proceeds go to our organization to support the DofE participants from socially disadvantaged groups. At the British Day in Eastern Bohemia, the DofE Award could raise CZK 6,050, but also forge useful contacts that can help expand the DofE Award.

In June 2014, over 130 young people who had successfully completed their DofE Award received their DofE certificates from UK Ambassador Jan Thompson and famous fisher Jakub Vágner. Since then, dozens of other participants have completed or are near the completion of their DofE Award goals. That is why we have started preparing for another DofE Award Ceremony, where the participants will receive their Silver and Bronze certificates and badges.

On Thursday June the 13th, the British Chamber of Commerce organized a golf tournament for its members and supporters. Traditionally, charity or non-profit organizations are given space to present their goals and work during such events. This time the opportunity was used by the DofE Award team, which accomplished two tasks: presented the formerly British youth programme to the new target group of potential supporters, and managed to raise altogether 25 000 CZK for the programme’s expansion in the Czech Republic.

Since the main aim of the DofE Award is a versatile development of the youth in their leisure time, we possibly could not miss an event during which children and young people are introduced to diverse possibilities of active time spending. For that reason, Bambiriáda was the place for us to be at!
