Adrian honoured by David Cameron

Former Prime Minister David Cameron has given Stop Hate campaigner Adrian Derbyshire a special Point Of Light award in recognition of the work he is doing on his round Britain hand-cycle tour.

The Points of Light award recognises outstanding individuals – people who are making a change in their community and inspiring others.

It has been developed in partnership with the hugely successful Points of Light programme in America, which was established by President George H W Bush, and has since recognised over 5,000 individuals and has the support of President Barack Obama.

Inspired

Adrian has received his award for hand-cycling thousands of miles to raise awareness of disability hate crime. After encountering verbal abuse himself, Adrian was inspired to undertake a 9-month challenge to cycle a marathon every day across the UK. He visits schools and youth centres, educating young people about hate crime through workshops.

David Cameron said: “We should do more as a country to recognise volunteering. In America, they have Points of Light. President George H W Bush spoke about 1,000 Points of Light shining out in difficult times now we have our own Points of Light scheme.”

Visit

Adrian visited the Prime Minister in Downing Street earlier this year when he briefed Mr Cameron on the tour and presented him with a tour top.

Said Adrian: “The campaign has had many highs and lows but this is a wonderful high. I am very proud to have been honoured in this way and would like to thank the Prime Minister for recognising the importance of what we are trying to do. The campaign has been a great success so far but there’s still a long way to go.”
