									 "My Bronze Award is the hardest thing I've ever had to do. Before that I'd never
   been on a mountain before and the only ice I'd seen was in my dad's Gin and
   Tonic. I found the expedition very tough - being away from home for the first
time, sleeping under canvas, it was all very new and scary stuff. But from then on
 I was smitten. I often reflect, when I'm on an expedition that if it wasn’t for that
   Duke of Edinburgh I wouldn't be here shivering my butt off!" - Jake, Liverpool
