A TEENAGER who has been honoured by the prime minister for her charity work is now working on creating a code of conduct to prevent cyber-bullying.

Chloe Hine, of Havant, set up Beat the Bullies as a way of helping others who had suffered at the hands of bulllies.

She wanted to guide young people away from negative coping mechanisms and to encourage them to turn to music, singing and songwriting, as she did.

Chloe, pictured, is now working with the The Royal Foundation – of which the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry are patrons – to tackle cyber-bullying.

Her mum Emma said that Chloe is now taking her message further afield.

‘She has been in and out of schools around the area this year talking about bullying and self-help techniques and has done several after-school meetings at community centres with parents and children about bullying as well,’ said Emma.

Since the launch of her charity, Chloe has been made an #iwill ambassador for the Step Up To Serve charity which helps young people engage in social action.

And Chloe was been recognised by prime minister Theresa May for her anti-bullying campaign. She was presented with the Point of Light award, which recognises people who are making a change in their community and inspiring others.

A fun day was held at Havant Park to raise money for Beat the Bullies

It was organised by Jessica Keating, from Buckland, Portsmouth, who was inspired to organise the event after hearing Chloe’s story raised £242.46.

Jessica said: ‘It was brilliant. It was a good turn out even when it rained in the afternoon, there was still people there.’
