Guardian Angel Keepsakes
1449. Ebonae-Rose Meeks
1450. Summer Meeks
Ebonae-Rose and Summer Meeks, aged 5 and 7, from Lancashire, have sent over 9,000 handmade guardian angel keepsakes to key workers across the UK accompanied by a handwritten thank you note.
The sisters were inspired by their father, who is a fireman, their grandmother, who is a nurse, and their aunt, who is a paramedic, to provide a way of sharing hope and positivity with other families whose loved ones have been supporting communities across the country throughout the pandemic.
In a personal letter to Ebonae-Rose and Summer, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said:
“I am amazed to hear you have sent your handmade guardian angels to over 9,000 of our extraordinary key workers, like your Dad, Aunt and Grandmother.
“These dedicated people are our country’s guardian angels and it is wonderful that you have created this way of saying thank you for how they look after us and keep us safe.
“So today I want to recognise you as the UK’s 1449th and 1450th Points of Light!
“On behalf of the whole country, thank you, and congratulations!”
Ebonae-Rose and Summer said:
“We are so happy! We can’t believe it, it feels so amazing that we have been helping so many people. We hope our Angels keep protecting people. We want to keep making and sending them so we can help everyone get better and protect them all. We hope soon everyone will be wearing them.”
