Points of Light Award 

The Prime Minister has today, 2 October, recognised Sue and David Hughes, from Stoke on Trent, for fundraising over £230,000 for 'Cardiac Risk in the Young' arranging over 1,700 vital heart screenings for young adults in memory of their son Daniel, who died aged 28 from an undetected heart condition.With their daughter Kim, Sue and David initially set out to provide a minimum of 200 local young people in the West Midlands with access to annual heart screenings. After their fundraising exceeded expectations, they have continued their campaign, as well as opening a memorial garden to Daniel at Audley Football Club where he used to play.”

In a personal letter we received from the Prime Minister he said
