Prime Minister’s Recognition
Jonathan Greenwood was awarded a Point of Light Award from Prime Minister Boris Johnson for his commitment to Volunteering and development of Group Hug
In a personal letter to Jonathan, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said:
“I was inspired to hear about how you have used your software skills to develop the ‘Group Hug’ app. At a time when people are unable to hug their loved ones physically, it is wonderful that you are holding them together in the digital world.
“You have created a supportive space for individuals to talk informally with volunteers about their mental health concerns. It is more important than ever that people feel able to speak out and connect with others.
“On top of this, you have found time to deliver over 1,800 bags of treats to those in need and to those serving on the front line. You are a true Point of Light in your community!”
