Motion text

That this House recognises that Tuoyo Ayiku, known affectionately as South Lanarkshire’s Mr T, has been nominated by the Prime Minister for a Points of Light Award; notes that Mr T currently runs the Heart in the Community Café, based in Cambuslang, and Heart of Africa UK charity, based in Larkhall; understands that, during lockdown, Mr T and his team of volunteers have delivered over 5,000 delicious meals to vulnerable people, including African stews, curries, rainbow fried rice, jerk chicken and mince and tatties; further understands that the Heart in the Community Café takes an inclusive approach to food provision, by operating a pay-what-you-can box and offering meals for foodbank vouchers; believes that Mr T’s determination to support those in most need in communities across South Lanarkshire and his commitment to supporting the most disadvantaged members of society make him a worthy recipient of the Points of Light Award; and congratulates Mr T on becoming the 1439th Point of Light and wishes him and his team of volunteers every success for the future.
