52 Lives founder, Jaime Thurston, received a Richmond Community Award this week. The award scheme, run by Richmond Council, recognises deserving and high-achieving people from every section of the community, who give service and help to improve people's lives. The awards were presented by Council leader Lord True at a ceremony in Twickenham.
MP for Twickenham Tania Mathias said: "Jaime has come up with a brilliant way of helping people and 52 Lives is a really original way of supporting others in the community who might otherwise not get help."
