👑 Ten years ago today, a truly special moment unfolded for Barry Hieger, then 79, as he was awarded the DofE Lifetime Achievement Award by HRH then The Earl of Wessex (now Duke of Edinburgh). A surprise honour that came ‘totally out of the blue’! 🌟

🕰️ Barry’s journey with JLGB began in 1948 at just 13 years old. His dedication has spanned over seven decades, marking him as JLGB’s longest-serving Officer. Today, as an Honorary Vice President, his legacy continues to inspire us all. 🙌

🚶‍♂️ After his national service in the Army, Barry was integral to The JLGB DofE from its inception. His expertise and passion have shaped the experiences of countless Gold DofE participants, guiding them through their expeditions. 🏕️

👀 Now nearly 90, Barry’s commitment hasn’t wavered. He still plans to assess Silver Expeditions, proving that age is just a number when it comes to passion and dedication! 💪

👏 Let’s celebrate Barry’s extraordinary commitment to empowering young people and shaping leaders for generations. #Leadership #CommunityHero

For over 125 years, young Jewish people have been discovering just how brilliant they can be and how they can make the world a better place through JLGB. Whether you're 8 or 18, whatever you want to be, join in and be your best self with us!
