The Discovery Award is similar to the Duke of Edinburgh Award for young people but is aimed at those over 50 years of age.
There are 3 levels; Bronze, Silver and Gold, and each level has 4 sections:
Service in the Community, Hobby or Interest, Recreational Pursuit and Discovery Challenge.
The Cults O50 got under way in February 2014. The group meets occasionally to share ideas and get advice from their Gold Award leader but essentially each person works out a personal programme for their chosen leisure activities. A year later members of the group are still full of enthusiasm. Bronze awards have been achieved and ideas for Silver are being explored.
