Members of the Horbury Breakthrough Youth Club were presented with two new tents and 3 new rucksacks on Monday evening to help them in gaining their Duke of Edinburgh bronze awards. The Youth Club have 35 members who are tackling the DofE Bronze Award this year and found themselves short of equipment so sought help from the Rotary Club of Horbury and Ossett Phoenix. President Elect Alan Hudders and Chairman of Rotary Youth Committee Mike Robb attended the club meeting to hand over the equipment to Youth Leader Kate who will supervise the DofE challenges. Mike Robb said, "As a recipient of a Gold DofE Award in my youth I know how valuable overcoming the challenges and achieving the standards have been to me both at the time and throughout my life. I would encourage all young people to get involved with DofE and similar challenges it will stand them in good stead for the rest of their lives."
