Marsha Gladstone, Points Of Light Outstanding Volunteer

EDM number 750 in 2017-19, proposed by Paul Masterton on 08/01/2018.
Categorised under the topic of Voluntary organisations.

That this House welcomes the recognition of Marsha Gladstone as a Points of Light outstanding volunteer for her work with the Yoni Jesner Foundation; understands that Points of Light was first established in the United States by President George H.W. Bush and introduced into the UK by then Prime Minister David Cameron in 2014; recognises the work that Marsha Gladstone has done within East Renfrewshire and the UK through the Yoni Jesner Foundation to honour the life of her son, Yoni Jesner; notes that Yoni was a former pupil of Belmont House School in Newton Mearns who planned to be a medical doctor; acknowledges that Yoni was only 19 when his life was cut short on 19 September 2002 when he and five other people were murdered in a Tel Aviv suicide bombing; commends the subsequent decision of his parents to allow for Yoni's organs to be donated to save the life of a young Palestinian girl, Yasmin Abu Ramila, who had experienced kidney failure since birth; and thanks the Yoni Jesner Foundation and Marsha Gladstone for their continued work to encourage volunteering, amongst other issues.

This motion has been signed by a total of 12 MPs.
