Points of Light Award from Number 10!

Home | News | Points of Light Award from Number 10!


We are so touched to announce that Joan and Bill Scott Aiton have just received a lovely letter from Theresa May. The letter was to tell us that Hazel’s Footprints has been given a “Points of Light” Award. The Prime Minister’s office announces one Point of Light each day to recognise “outstanding individual volunteers”.

Theresa May wrote:

You have created an inspirational charity to commemorate the life of your daughter, Hazel. Through Hazels Footprints, you are helping others gain the life-changing experience of volunteering abroad, while supporting education and development projects across the world.

In response, Bill and Joan said:

We are very honoured and surprised, but feel the award reflects all the hard work that has been done by the Trustees and all Hazels young friends who have supported us over the years. Above all, Hazel herself would have been thrilled that so many young, underprivileged children have benefited from all the hard work.
