North East Hertfordshire MP Sir Oliver Heald presented Point of Light certificates on behalf of the Prime Minister to his constituent Claire Pedrick and her friend Margaret Grey.
Claire and Margaret were the brains behind ‘Walks to d’feet MND’ following the diagnosis of Margaret’s husband and their friend Pete with MND. These are monthly half marathon walks in the local community in aid of the MND Association. The walk has now attracted over 300 attendees. Each month for a whole year, the pair have brought together their community to walk the half marathon and have raised a magnificent £46,000.
Sir Oliver said “I was delighted to present certificates to Claire and Margaret who are 876th and 877th Points of Light winners. It is good that the Prime Minister is personally recognising their achievements and I would like to congratulate them on raising so much money for the charity.”
