About Us

Tonbridge Gold is a charity that provides expedition training for the Duke of Edinburgh's Award (DofE).  We hold an Adventure Activities Licensing Authority (AALA) licence and are a DofE Approved Activity Provider (AAP), specialising in Gold training for both walking and paddling expeditions.  We provide training (theory and practical) and a supported practice expedition which will prepare you for the challenge of completing a 4-day assessed expedition on your own.  We also offer opportunities to complete that assessed expedition with us - we provide the transport and supervision - but you can also choose to do the assessed expedition with another AAP.
