AN anti-bullying campaigner from Milton Keynes has met with the Prime Minister to award him with the Diana Award.

Alex Holmes, from Stony Stratford, met with PM David Cameron to discuss his Random Acts of Kindness - an initiative that encourages young people to perform good deeds in their local area and bridges the gap between communities.

Alex, 23, has been fighting against bullying for many years and has received two Diana Anti-Bullying awards in the past for his work at the Radcliffe School in Wolverton.

He said: “It was a privilege to meet the Prime Minister. I enjoyed speaking to the packed room of guests and talking to them about my community movement Random Acts of Kindness.

“The prime-minister was really interested to hear about my work, especially as it ties in nicely with his ‘Big Society’ idea and loved the idea of Smile and Compliment days, which all began at The Radcliffe School in Wolverton.”

Prime Minister David Cameron said: “The Diana Award is a wonderful way to leave a living legacy to the late Princess and to recognise our country’s talented and inspirational young people who volunteer, work and campaign for the benefit of others.”
