Youth Ambassador of the Year Award
Isa Chaudrey, a member of the Surrey Heath Youth Council aged 15, said:
Craig Alford attended the Surrey Heath Youth Council meeting to raise awareness of Surrey Youth games. I was interested in how Craig was expressing his opinion about fitness and the well being of individuals. In addition to this I decided to volunteer to promote the Surrey Youth Games in my school as I believed it would have a substantial affect on the lives of young people. I shared flyers with students in my school, I approached students at my school and told them about the Surrey Youth Games and encouraged them to join in and participate. I know one of my peers attended the boxing sessions as well.
Dylan Wright, who won the award was quoted saying “I am very grateful for receiving this award, and I want to thank the Youth Council especially Alexandria who helped me spread the word of the wonderful youth games!” “At my school me and Alexandria held a presentation on the youth games at Collingwood College.”
The Surrey Heath Youth Council are immensely proud to have received a Diana Award for their work to reduce the stigma around mental health, open up discussion and increase awareness of mental wellbeing in Surrey Heath through their Anti-Stigma Conference.
