Two students from Diss High School have been presented with The Diana Award.

Kaylee Andrews and Ruby Mouser have received the award that recognises inspirational and socially active young people in the memory of Princess Diana.

The award, which also has the Prime Minister David Cameron as patron, is held by just 40,000 people world wide and encourages young people to take part in their communities and to make a difference in the lives of others.

The girls were nominated by the school for their outstanding fund raising for the Norfolk based charity Walking with the Wounded and received their award from X Factor contestant Hannah Barrett.

Inspired by war veteran Duncan Slater, and the challenges he has overcome, the girls raised more than £3,000 through a sponsored walk from Hunstanton to Cromer.

Their efforts inspired 200 other young people to take on fundraising activities for the charity.

“We are exceptionally proud of their achievements and look forward to supporting them in their next adventure as they are truly inspiring,” said Mrs Somers, Head of Year 10.
