Every week day the Prime Minister recognises an inspirational volunteer with the Daily Point of Light award.
First established by President George H. W. Bush in 1990, over 6,000 US Points of Light have been recognised in the USA. UK Points of Light was developed in partnership with the US programme and launched in the Cabinet Room at 10 Downing Street in April 2014.
Since then hundreds of people have been named Points of Light by the Prime Minister, highlighting an enormous array of innovative and inspirational volunteering across the length and breadth of Britain.
We were delighted and so proud earlier today when our Founder Callum received a call from Downing Street, informing him that the PM had heard about the brilliant work here at Sporting Wellness, and that he wanted to recognise everything Callum has done by making him the UK’s 1610th Point of Light!
Callum said ‘This is a brilliant reflection of how well we are doing as a team and as a charity. And it’s all happened and we’ve achieved so much in just over a year …. I am honoured and so very proud, it’s amazing.”
