Today, The Department for Culture, Media and Sport announced that the Prime Minister is awarding Linda Magistris, CEO and Founder of The Good Grief Trust, a Points of Light award in honour of her work establishing The Good Grief Trust.
The Prime Minister’s daily Points of Light award recognises outstanding individual volunteers – people who are making positive changes in their communities. The UK award was set up in partnership with the US Points of Light Foundation, which was established over 25 years ago and has since recognised over 6,000 inspiring volunteers in the US. We are delighted that Linda will be the UK’s 1003rd Points of Light.
I have been working closely with Linda over the last two years on the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Bereavement Support and am delighted to see her achievements recognised.
