Since the age of 14, Wyke student Rhiannon Sweeney has received numerous awards and certificates in recognition of her outstanding contribution to local charities and anti-bullying initiatives.
Whist at Winterton Academy, Rhiannon became a peer mentor and cyber mentor with Autism Training, where she volunteered to support younger students who had or were being bullied. Since then she has undertaken a bungee jump, ran fundraising stalls and completed sponsored walks to help people in need.
It didn’t take long before all Rhiannon’s energy and good-will was rewarded. She is the proud holder of two Diana Awards and last month she won the title of the Anti-Bullying Champion of North Lincolnshire.
“Fundraising and volunteering have opened up a whole new world for me where I see things from a different perspective and can help make a difference”, Rihannon told the audience at the #iwill Ambassador Awards.
