I was delighted to host a reception in Parliament tonight to celebrate the Diamond Anniversary of the Duke of Edinburgh Awards. Special thanks to Stephen and Nicole for sharing their #DofE experience with us this evening. They, alongside all those who take part in the programme, are excellent ambassadors for the Duke of Edinburgh awards and should be very proud of their achievements.
