Duke of Edinburgh Coordinator Miss Hatchell has finished 24 hours on the ledges of the climbing wall in celebration of 60 years of DofE. DofE managers were asked to set themselves a personal challenge to help raise money for young people who don’t have the opportunity to do so. Miss Hatchell climbed the Dean Close climbing wall at 6.30pm yesterday and slept on the ledges through what was a very cold night last night! She touched back down at 6.30pm this evening. After her epic challenge she said “A massivethank you to everyone for being so brilliant and supportive over the24 hours. I loved all my visitors.I had company the whole time…except for four chapters worth of my book and 30 minutes learning Spanish!”
