Award boost for sub's charity work

Bullying Online, the charity run by Yorkshire Evening Post sub editor Liz Carnell, has scooped another major award.

The anti-bullying children’s charity won the community and voluntary section of the Yorkshire and Humber regional final of the E-Commerce Awards 2003.

The award means the charity will receive £2,000 in prize money to help with running costs, and gives it a second year of success after it won the same title last year.

It will now go on to compete in the national finals in London next month.

Liz said: “We nearly didn’t enter because we won it last year and we didn’t think we’d stand a chance again.

“The competition was a great deal hotter this year. I did a major rewrite of the site content towards the end of last year so that must have helped us.

“To win another £2,000 is amazing, we are delighted.”

The award is a further boost for Bullying Online, which last month received a £10,000 government grant to help with running costs.

Launched four years ago, the charity’s website, has now had more than 398,000 visitors, with volunteers responding to more than 20,000 emails.
