Christmas message from the Chair of The Duke of Edinburgh Award’s Women in Business Committee, HRH The Countess of Wessex, GCVO.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award have produced a special Christmas message themed around the poem ‘What is Christmas’ by Agnes Pharo. The poem epitomises the challenging year that young people across the country have faced and inspires us to look to the future ahead.

They are delighted to share a special DofE Christmas message from the Chair of their Women in Business Committee, HRH The Countess of Wessex, GCVO.

The DofE has a crucial role to play, now more than ever, to be there for young people when they need support and encourgement most. It’s so important to provide them with the structure, focus and purpose to help them navigate these difficult times. In the video you’ll hear from Megan who, in her own words, has unboxed the resilience she gained through her DofE to help her through the current pandemic and look to the future.

Season’s greetings and warmest wishes.
