The DofE’s Own Weekend Festival

Whilst most of Eccles RFC are looking forward to the weekend beer festival, spare a thought for those who will be away this weekend in North Wales with the clubs Duke of Edinburgh Silver Group.
Eccles RFC were the 1st rugby club in the country to offer the DofE scheme to it’s young people and has gone from strength to strength. Paul Griffiths (Director of DofE North) states that we are one of the most successful schemes in the North and the highest achievers within the Salford area. It is also why other clubs are copying our initiative..
Paul Newton, Vivienne Newton, Hilary Berry, Trev Parrott, Shaun Barlow and Ruth McGaharan will be looking after 22 of our young people as the set off early on Saturday morning to North Wales for their expedition. This is on top of the volunteering, physical and skills sections that the young people participate in and the training for the expedition…
