In June 2016 Cor received a prestigious Points of Light award from Prime Minister David Cameron in recognition of her charitable work with Finding Your Feet.
The Points of Light award was developed in partnership with the hugely successful Points of Light programme in the USA, first established by President George H. W. Bush.
Over 5,000 US Points of Light have been awarded and both President George H. W. Bush and President Barack Obama have publicly supported the partnership with Points of Light UK which honours shining examples of volunteering across the country.
Whether it’s a doctor restoring local monuments in her free time, a father teaching young people life skills, or a local musician giving a voice to lonely people, the Point of Light award honours those representing positive and successful volunteering across the UK.
David Cameron, Prime Minister said: “Corinne is a Point of Light. From carrying the Commonwealth baton, to becoming the first female quadruple amputee in history to reach the summit of Ben Nevis, her world record-breaking physical challenges inspire others affected by amputation and raise funds for her fantastic ‘Finding Your Feet’ charity.”
