DofE Testimonials

In the time I have known Steve Hill, he has undertaken many challenges that few would even consider, never mind take part in.  Following on from this, he truly inspires everyone he meets, especially his year 6 students in his class each year.

Steve became one of our Gold Award Presenters, undertaking this role at St James’s Palace last year, to share his inspirational challenges to recipients of The Duke of Edinburgh's Gold Award.  The feedback we received from this was a true reflection on what an inspiration Steve is and his ‘can do’ attitude.  Having also presented at Holyrood House Palace in Edinburgh in the Summer, we have again asked him to present back at St James’s Palace next week having completed his latest challenge of climbing Mount Toubkal.   I would have no hesitation in recommending Steve to present, inspire and motivate you with his remarkable and humble story of his challenges.
