Orchard School Students Geared up for their Expeditions

Blue Light Partnership (BLP) continues its quest to engage with the local community. Its main contractor, Miller has donated hiking equipment to Orchard School in Bristol to assist with their spring and summer expeditions in the Forest of Dean and the Brecon Beacons. Five pairs of boots, sleeping bags, water proof trousers, tops and hiking bags were donated to the school to help students achieve their bronze expeditions as part of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme, a youth charity which gives young people the chance to develop skills for work and life, fulfill their potential and have a brighter future.

“We are very grateful for such a wonderful donation, it will contribute to the legacy of work completed by students this year and in years to come, allowing students from all backgrounds to take part.” Jennifer Onslow, Head of Humanities and Leader of DofE at Orchard School.
