*“The struggle to fit in at school is one that is only too familiar; having been subjected to bullying, working with Local Heroes is an amazing opportunity to support a fantastic initiative in changing attitudes and celebrating uniqueness and individuality. It’s so important for young people facing these difficulties to realise that they aren’t on their own, what they’re experiencing isn’t acceptable and that there is nothing wrong with who they are as a person.

Local Heroes has already leapt from strength to strength and I can’t wait to see what the future holds - its going to be exciting!”*
