Tallie B in year 12 has completed a special ‘Diamond’ Duke of Edinburgh Challenge.

The Diamond Challenge celebrates the Duke of Edinburgh Award’s 60th anniversary. To complete it and receive the diamond pin, participants had to raise a minimum of £60 for the DofE charity.

16-year-old Tallie raised her money by drawing and selling her own nature inspired art. She also organised a lucky dip at the school’s summer fair.

When asked about the award, Tallie said: “It was a great experience. I encourage others to do take part in it, it’s well worth it!”
