A Cheltenham mother who walked around the British coastline in memory of her daughter has been recognised by the Prime Minister.
Natalia Spencer trekked more than 6,000 miles - and raised more than £100,000 for Bristol Children's Hospital - after her five-year-old Elizabeth died of septic shock.
She has now been awarded the Point of Light award, recognising outstanding volunteers, and those who are making a change in their community and inspiring others.
It was a massive surprise for me to find out that l have been awarded with the Points of Light award.
I feel very humbled and honoured that the Elizabeth's Footprint fundraising effort is recognised by the Prime Minister and by such a prestigious organisation as Points of Light.
She also received as a personal letter from Theresa May.
Your inspirational challenge of walking the entire coastline of Britain has raised vital funds for the Bristol Children’s Hospital and is a wonderful tribute to the life of your daughter, Elizabeth.

Two men have been prosecuted after pleading guilty to fly tipping general household waste.
Mr Duplessis and Mr Gobey, both from Cheltenham, received fines of £150 and were also ordered to pay costs of £220 and a victim surcharge of £30.
The prosecution followed a complaint made to the community protection team last June indicating that a large amount of fly tipped waste had been deposited at the end of Nailsworth Terrace and a link footpath leading through to Poole Way, Cheltenham.
Mr Gobey said during the interview that he was helping his neighbour move house at the time that they left the waste.
