The announcement was revealed at a gala ceremony on the evening of the 21 November at The Hurlingham Club in London. The Diana Award’s CEO Tessy Ojo received the award at an event that has billed as the sector’s night of the year.
The Diana Award was set up in memory of The Duke of Cambridge and Duke of Sussex’s mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, and her belief that young people have the power to change the world for the better. The charity fosters, develops and inspires positive change in the lives of young people through three key programmes which include; a mentoring programme for young people at risk, a youth-led anti-bullying ambassadors campaign and a prestigious award which publicly recognises young people – The Diana Award.
“We are absolutely delighted to receive this award recognising the volunteering and social impact of our work with young people. At The Diana Award we value and invest in young people encouraging them to continue to make positive change in their communities and lives of others.”
Tessy Ojo, CEO at The Diana Award
