Warwick teen globally recognised for voluntary work

Over the past 5 years, Córa-Laine has positively impacted the lives of many young people through the charity Safeline.

Córa-Laine then went on to become a Safeline Student Ambassador; a role which seen her promoting Safeline services throughout the country.

Córa-Laine said “To have been selected to be one of twenty recipients and be supported by an amazing organisation such as The Diana Award will continue to come as a shock to me.

“Everyone of the award holders are so inspiring, they are making great changes in the world, just like Princess Diana did. They saw something that needed to change and work so hard to do so.”
