Points of Light Award

Eco Rangers NI is awarded Point of Light #1644

Abe was delighted to accept the 'Points of Light' award on behalf of Eco Rangers NI. The award coincides with the start of the Great British Spring Clean, an annual campaign encouraging people to volunteer to keep their local neighbourhoods clean which Eco Rangers NI participates in every year.

In a personal letter to Abe, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said:

“I was inspired to hear about your crack team of 600 eco rangers clearing the beautiful coastline and countryside of Northern Ireland. Litter is a scourge on our green spaces and so it is fantastic to see your team of volunteers tackling this issue.

“Let me also thank your faithful companion, Bobby, who I know joins you on your clean up sessions.

“As we mark the Great British Spring Clean, I am delighted to recognise you as the UK’s 1644th Point of Light. Thank you and congratulations!”

Abe said:

“I am delighted to accept the award on behalf of the Eco Ranger group, now with 600+ Eco Rangers, who undertake conservation work and remove polluting litter in County Antrim, Northern Ireland.”
