A couple from Windsor have been recognised for their work to raise awareness and money for a bereavement charity.
Paul and Louise Woodbridge were named as a ‘Point of Light’ by Prime Minister David Cameron.
They were recognised for their work as patrons of Child Bereavement UK (CBUK), which supported them after the death of their young twins.
The couple’s two-year-old twins, William and Betsy, were killed when a chest of drawers they were playing with fell on top of them.
Louise and Paul said: "We are simply overwhelmed to receive this very special award from the Prime Minister.
“CBUK became our lifeline when our beloved children Betsy and William were killed, making our survival possible through our grief.
“We feel it is so important to try and give back in any way possible to CBUK who quite simply helped to save our lives and gave us the coping skills to continue on our journey."
They were presented with the award by Samantha Cameron at a Downing Street on Tuesday, January 19.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
