Bereaved mother receives award from Prime Minister for charity efforts

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.

– Theresa May
