In July last year, a group of children from Bradley Barton were lucky enough to go to Newton Abbot College for a Diana Award Anti Bullying training day. The Diana Award is the only charity that bears the name of the late Diana, Princess of Wales.
It is a living legacy to Diana, Princess of Wales’ belief that young people have the power to change the world for the better. Since 1999 The Diana Award has recognised over 41,000 ordinary young people who have made an extraordinary difference to their community.
The Diana Award is just the beginning. Through the Diana network and the programme the children feel empowered, engaged and encouraged to keep up the good work following their training.
