The High Profile team has many qualifications and certificates to their names, but the company can now add “The Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award” to that list.

Leading youth Charity the DofE gives all young people aged 14-24 the chance to develop skills for life and work, fulfil their potential and have a brighter future.

Richard Bloxham, a member of High Profile’s tool making department, collected his Gold Award in March following a ceremony at St James Palace with the Duke of Edinburgh present and Justin Packshaw, Explorer and Entrepreneur, presenting the awards.

Achieving your Gold Award is a challenging process over a number of years. It shows that you have the skills, determination, commitment and mentality to really succeed.  So it’s only right that you get a proper royal celebration of your achievement.

Richard Wood managing director said “We would like to congratulate Richard on his accomplishment in getting his Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award. We are always supportive of our staff then when they are striving to better themselves inside and out of the High Profile business, Richard’s achievement is a brilliant example of hard work and determination. “
