Our Young Person Services are urging people across East Renfrewshire to challenge themselves as part of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) Diamond Challenge.

They are holding this special 60th anniversary event to help raise funds to transform lives of disadvantaged young people across the UK.

As part of the 60-inspired challenges, locals can choose to join a team of 60 people in a relay to cycle, run, swim and walk 60 miles, or pick a challenge more personal to you.

They are looking for 300 people to join in and make East Renfrewshire’s challenge the biggest one in Britain.

People of all ages and abilities can get involved and for those who don’t want to take part in a physical activity there is the opportunity to bake, learn an instrument, hula-hoop, sing or do yoga.

The East Ren Diamond Challenge event takes place on Friday 25 November 2016 from 3-7pm at Eastwood High School, Newton Mearns, G77 6NQ.

For more information and to sign up for the event, go to the Duke of Edinburgh website. If you are coming along to participate on the day please email and he will send you a time slot and more information.
