The lush Hurlingham Club on the brink of the River Thames was on 26th September filled with role models and charities who came together to honour Britain’s most inspirational people for their fight against inequality.

Speaking during the ceremony sponsored by Microsoft, Activist and Campaigner Peter Tatchell, a patron for the awards, said: “It is a huge honour to be a patron of the National Diversity Awards, which does such outstanding work to promote, empower, profile and acknowledge organisations that are pioneering amazing initiatives on equality and diversity issues.”
