Jordan, aged 18 from Nottingham. Diana Champion Volunteer.
“After suffering from abuse as a child, as soon as I left my stepfather I promised myself that I would make a difference to the world that I lived in. I started at the age of sixteen by organising fundraising for my school. When I moved to college my confidence grew and so did my fundraising ability. Finding that I had a talent for photography I used this to campaign for fairtrade and raise money for charities. This eventually led to me getting a trip to Kenya, doing photography for a fairtrade company while being able to document the social divide. This gave me the chance to educate my college and Nottingham on fairtrade. The campaign is still going and growing every day.
Bradley, aged 18 from Lincolnshire talks about receiving his Diana Award.
I received the Diana Award on behalf of Carlton Road Youth Centre for the valuable voluntary youth work I do. As part of my role as a voluntary youth worker I am involved in several different things such as centre based youth work, detached youth work. The youth centre is on the estate where I live so I think it is important that people put things back into the community.
