A Sergeant from Whitby's Air Training Corp squadron has been presented with an award at Buckingham Palace.

Whitby 740 Squadron’s Sergeant Wharrick travelled to Buckingham Palace to accept her Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award alongside former cadet, Kerryn Atkinson.

The event took place on Thursday 17 May, where over 2000 award holders travelled from all over the country to accept the most prestigious Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and also get the chance to meet Royals and celebrities.

Talking about the experience Sergeant Wharrick said..

"The event took place in the gardens of Buckingham Palace, where we had time to explore and take in the lovely views before gathering in our groups ready for HRH Princess Royal. Princess Anne came to speak to us about what we got up to during the award and was surprised to hear about my expedition in Bavaria. Many celebrities were around throughout the day and each one presented a group with their certificates. World champion and Olympic rower Jonathan Walton presented my award."
