Young dancer and CHSF Youth Ambassador Junior Frood was recently awarded the rare GOLD Blue Peter Badge for his anti-bullying work, #BoysCanDance Campaign and for his charity work which has helped to raise funds and awareness for charities like Children’s Heart Surgery Fund.

Junior, who is training at the famous Jelli Studios Dance School in Liverpool is well known for his anti-bullying campaign, which has seen him speak in Parliament, Number 10 Downing Street and various events across the country.

He constantly campaigns and is out to prove that Boys Can Dance, having suffered years of bullying himself for his love of dance.

His Gold Badge was presented to him during a film about his campaign shown on Blue Peter. He was interviewed by Blue Peter presenter Richie, dancing at Jelli Studios, and he was taken to Blackpool for a surprise Meet and Greet with Dance Troupe Diversity, where he was asked to dance for Ashley Banjo and the Diversity boys.

Children’s Heart surgery Fund are so proud of our amazing Youth Ambassador and all the amazing work he does for charities just like ours. Well done Junior!
