George, the originator of the initiative, said “The MDP, our partner agencies and dedicated volunteers have strived to make the initiative a great success and it is really nice that the hard work of the team is recognised at the highest level within the MOD”. Russell added “ The Disco regularly attracts 240 young people and is inclusive of the local area. It has broken down barriers and provides a safe environment for our young people to enjoy themselves”

Congratulations also to PCs Ray Bartholomew & Tony Allen from Innsworth who were placed third in the Inclusivity Award.
