Last week in the Prime Minister questions that were entitled Engagements one of the local MPs who participated was Sally-Ann Hart and she raised the theme of Points of Light Award which has clearly had a focus on the Government. In addition to the Government aspect this was an American theme so it would be good for the UK to participate on it for the whole of the world. Now clearly it must be treated as not a party political. Sally-Ann asked Rishi “will the PM join me in thanking all our fantastic volunteers and community champions” and we clearly need all MPs to participate in this theme as it is not a party political aspect. The full question and Rishi Sunak’s response is shown below. It is very significant that Sally-Ann has asked this question and we should be able to promote it across our Nation. So what is going to take place from the Parliament? Here is the question and answer:
Sally-Ann Hart: Recently, I presented a Prime Minister’s Points of Light award to Joan Willett, who is nearly 107, for her fundraising for the British Heart Foundation, and two other Hastings and Rye residents, Anthony Kimber and Alastair Fairley, were celebrated as community champions at No. 10. Will the Prime Minister join me in thanking all our fantastic volunteers and community champions, not only in Hastings and Rye but throughout the United Kingdom, and will he continue to bring them together in celebration?
Rishi Sunak: I thank my hon. Friend and I am absolutely delighted that Joan received her Points of Light award. Volunteers and community champions such as Joan, Anthony and Alastair all make important contributions to their local community and we are all grateful to them. Every month, millions do the same thing and they deserve our praise. Their generosity is integral to what makes our country and our communities special, and it is right that we do everything we can to celebrate them.
