A WOMAN'S dedication to young people has been recognised during a royal garden party.

Dianne Bartlett from Stevenage was thanked for her "outstanding dedication and commitment in helping young people" by The Prince of Wales, president and founder of The Prince's Trust, and The Duchess of Cornwall at Buckingham Palace.

Dianne, who works for The Royal Bank of Scotland Group, is one of 1,500 employees that have given their time to support disadvantaged young people.

She took part in a week-long project to make over a school's garden.

The party paid tribute to the exceptional commitment of more than 6,000 volunteers from across the UK who have supported the youth charity since 1976.

Dianne said: "The work of The Prince's Trust is truly amazing in changing young people's lives. It is so rewarding and fulfilling to be able to support young people and I'm glad I have had the opportunity to make a difference.
