Diana Honours List; Medals Scheme for the Children Who Care


Byline: RICHARD KAY

A NEW honour in memory of Princess Diana is to be presented through schools across Britain.

The medal will be awarded to children aged between 11 and 18 for bravery, self-sacrifice and service to others.

All of the country's secondary schools will be invited to nominate one candidate each year who has contributed most to voluntary service. Several medals will be awarded, although it is not clear how many.

The honour will be attached to a ribbon and is expected to be of gold or silver, possibly with a portrait of the princess on one side and an inscription on the reverse.

Nominations could be assessed by a panel before an awards ceremony in London. The idea, suggested by a member of the public and backed by Chancellor Gordon Brown's Diana memorial committee, is to spread the acts of kindness associated with the Princess in her lifetime, right around the country. One idea is that the awards should be called the 'Princess of Wales Trophy'. It is likely that the recipient will have committed much of his or her spare time to helping the elderly, the infirm and the disabled.

TV presenter and ChildLine chairman Esther Rantzen said it was a fitting way to remember the princess.
