The Salford Dragon Boat Festival

Sunday 12th May 2019


In 2011 an idea was hatched to start the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme through Eccles Rugby Club, the guinea pigs would be Eccles under 15’s team.

It is a balanced programme of activities that develops the whole person – mind, body and soul – in an environment of social interaction and teamworking. Young people progress through three levels of DofE programmes to achieve a Bronze, Silver or Gold Award.

Taking part builds confidence and develops self-esteem. It requires persistence, commitment and has a lasting impact on the attitudes and outlook of all young people who do their DofE.
