Outstanding for All Awards

The Celebrating Diversity Award, presented by Councillor Bernice Vanier, went to educational group Narrative Eye, who visit schools to teach pupils about black history.

Tanya Thompson, collecting the award on behalf of the group, said: “It’s surprising to win, we just humbly go about our work and just try to make a difference to children and adults”.

The group’s current work involves teaching children about Afro-Caribbean people’s involvement in World War One, but the next project will be on the contribution of black people to society in the Tudor period.
