Elizabeth Grier-Menager created a campaign to collect coats for the homeless.
After feeling the harshness of British winters and noticing that the UK don’t do “coat drives” like the USA, Ms Grier-Menager decided to collect coats for the homeless on the streets of the capital.
Her campaign managed to collect more than 40,000 coats at a number of coat collection points through London. Many could be found at underground stations.
In recognition of her efforts Prime Minister David Cameron will be giving Ms Grier-Menager the Points of Light award.
Ms Grier-Menanger joined Wake Up London to discuss her work, her efforts to promote charity work and what the award means to her.
