P.S. Thank you...

Not only are we coming to the end of the month but also the end of the year and I wanted to take some time to reflect on what has been an abnormal year.

This year has been hard for everyone and nothing we ever expected but through all of this, Diana Award recipients have inspired us everyday.

Thank you all for your commitment and perseverance. Thank you for always looking out for others and letting us play a small part in your journey. It has been wonderful to connect with so many of you this year and we hope your engagement with the Development Programme has bought you a little joy.


I wish you all a Happy New Year and hope you enjoy a restful break.
Kind regards,

Saraniya Thayaparan
Award & Development Programme Coordinator
