Points of Light Award

Points of Light Award

Chris and Helen are thrilled to have been awarded the Points of Light from 10 Downing Street in recognition for the work they have done, setting up a charity to support families such as their own, who are dealing with the diagnosis of fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP)

'Points of Light' are outstanding, individual volunteers - people who are meaking a change in their community. Every weekday, 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 5,000 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, highlightnig an enormous array of innovative and inspirational volunteering across the length and breadth of Britain.
