Ben, in Year 11 has been given the Diana Award, a life long honour, after receiving the Frome Citizen of the Year Award this week, for his volunteering activities and helping others. Along with the other projects he is involved in, Ben is currently organising, with Dorothy House Hospice, a sponsored bike ride to set up a charity which will be sustainable and continue to offer a mentoring service for young vulnerable people. He successfully secured a Youth Bank grant enabling him to train in First Aid and coaching skills which he can use to support young people. Ben is organising this with Dorothy House and accountants in his own time after school. As part of the on going network and mentoring programme the Diana Award will be holding an ‘Inspire Day’ in Bristol in July where the awards will be presented in a special ceremony.

 

Congratulations go to Ben from us all for such an outstanding and well-deserved achievement!
