Youngsters receive award at swanky ceremony
9:00am Wednesday 30th October 2013 in Harwich and Manningtree News
A YOUTH forum received a national accolade at the Diana Award Ceremony where they rubbed shoulders with the stars.
Harwich Inspired Youth Action (HIYA) is a part of Teen Talk and were given the prize for being Diana Active Campaigners in the local community and for their Hoody Festival in 2012.
The award was presented by ambassador and captain of the Team GB Paralympics sitting volleyball team Martine Wright and Britain’s Got Talent finalist Jordan O’Keefe at a glitzy award ceremony at Barclay’s HQ in London.
Teen Talk manager Hayley Lovett said: “We are extremely proud of HIYA.
“The Diana Award will encourage the group to continue their work and will hopefully inspire others to stand up for their beliefs."
