British Airways Partners With The Diana Award for Legacy Award Ceremony

As the official travel partner, British Airways flew Diana Legacy Award winners from around the world to London for the bi-annual Legacy Award ceremony.

BRITISH AIRWAYS has partnered with The Diana Award for the 2019 Legacy Award, hosted by Earl Spencer and held at the Old Royal Naval College yesterday evening.

As the official travel partner, British Airways flew Diana Legacy Award winners from around the world to London for the bi-annual Legacy Award ceremony. 

This unique accolade celebrates the achievements of 20 outstanding young leaders, visionaries and role models from across the world, who have demonstrated their ability to inspire and mobilise new generations to serve their communities.

Established in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales, and her belief that young people have the power to change the world for the better, The Diana Award aims to recognise and inspire the next generation of young leaders who are creating positive social change in their communities. It is one of the most prestigious accolades a young person aged 9-25 years can receive for their social or humanitarian work. 

The winners were selected from a poll of nominations by an independent judging panel which included British Airways Chairman and CEO Alex Cruz, Baroness Lawrence OBE and Holly Branson. 

Alex Cruz, British Airways Chairman and CEO, said: “We are delighted to have partnered with The Diana Award for the Legacy Award ceremony, as they continue their work in recognising incredible young people. British Airways is committed to having a positive impact in local communities in the UK and around the world, so we are proud to support projects and individuals who make a positive, lasting impact."

“This is a landmark event for The Diana Award as we celebrate our 20th anniversary year. This ceremony is about celebrating young people for their selfless contribution to society, their courage and bravery, and demonstrating to young people that we value them.  We’re incredibly grateful to British Airways as our travel partner, helping us bring all the young people together from around the world to celebrate their achievements and continue their development," said Tessy Ojo, Chief Executive, The Diana Award.
