The roadshow has to be funded. In the past the Community Safety Partnerships between Police, Schools, Local & national government made funds available to carry out the work.

MISSION STATEMENT: "We believe that all children and young people should grow up without being bullied. We combat bullying with proven strategies that can be adopted straight away with presentations tailored to specific needs."

Brummie muscleman Dave Gauder put his considerable weight behind a world record attempt to beat playground bullies. Ex-world strongman Dave, who is famous for his bus-pulling heroics, set himself another impossible challenge at Heart of England School, in Balsall Common.

The stunt saw Dave set a new world record by pulling two JCB 3CX models across the playground.

His visit was part of the heavyweight’s bid to wipe out bullying in schools.

Dave, from Kings Norton, devised a buddy scheme, which assigns a student mentor to primary and secondary school pupils who may be struggling at school.


It was originally set up in the Croxteth area of Liverpool, where 11-year-old schoolboy Rhys Jones was gunned down in broad daylight as he walked home from football training in August 2007.

Dave said he was committed to helping children after he suffering at the hands of bullies as a school boy.


Dave said: “Having experienced bullying first hand as a child, I understand the devastating affects it can have on a young person, not only through their school years but also throughout their life.


“I have devised this programme to share tactics on how to deal will bullying and also deliver messages to address the students who are dishing it out.


“Over the years, I have seen some tremendous results which for me, and for those affected by bullying, is very rewarding.”


Dave, who has reached nearly one million children with his campaign, spoke with 350 pupils at Heart of England school about his own experiences.
