Braillists Chairman Receives Points of Light Award

On 8 February 2023, Dave Williams, our Chairman, became the 1892nd recipient of a Points of Light award from Prime Minister Rishi Sunak in recognition of his voluntary work with the Braillists Foundation. On accepting the award, he dedicated it to everyone who has volunteered for the Braillists since its inception.

The Prime Minister’s daily Points of Light award is a cross-party programme supported by all MPs which recognises, every weekday, an outstanding individual volunteer, charity leader or community champion for the positive change they are making for their community. The programme is administered by the Government’s volunteering team at the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).

The Prime Minister wrote to Dave to personally thank him for his work. He also received a certificate.
