Earlier this week Play2Give went to Parliament as our founder and inspirational chief, Andy, took a trip to Westminster to receive his honour awarded to him by the Prime Minister.
Andy, together with our Community Officer, Matthew Norris - who nominated Andy and Andy's Mum, Ann, the trio visited London to meet with our local MP, David Johnston OBE. David was delighted to present Andy with his 'Points of Light Award' that was given to him by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, announced earlier this month.
Andy, Matt and Ann were treated to afternoon tea and cake by David in the Parliamentary restaurant before setting off to enjoy the rest of the afternoon to explore Westminster and landmarks including Westminster Abbey, the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom and they even got to go and see Buckingham Palace from the outside as darkness was creeping in.
Andy was the 1,290th recipient to be honoured with this prestigious award from the Prime Minister, which recognises outstanding individual volunteers from across the United Kingdom.
Congratulations Andrew, and we are delighted to announce that since meeting Andy, David has agreed to become a Patron of Play2Give!
