Truro School receives DofE certificate

Following on from the news earlier this term that Truro School had the highest level of DofE awards in the South West, the School was pleased to receive a certificate.

Alan Dodd, Operations Manager for the DofE award sent this lovely email:


Dear Mr Gordon-Brown [copy to Mike Cucknell]

Following on from the South West annual statistical review you received a few weeks ago and our CEO’s update at the end of June, I am delighted to send you a certificate of social value which details the total hours DofE participants within your organisation donated to their local community in the last financial year 2019/20. Across the South West, DofE participants contributed an incredible 331,994 volunteering hours to help others, which equates to a social value of over £1,440,000.

At a time when volunteering and supporting the local community could not be more important, Heather Thompson, DofE South West Director, has asked me to pass on her thanks to you, your DofE Manager, staff volunteers, and finally your incredible participants who have made, and continue to make, such a positive impact on their local community.

If you would like to share this on social media, please do tag us on Twitter @DofESouthWest so that we can celebrate your DofE participants’ success with you!
