Lockdown Survival Pack Deliverer
1394. Alfie Dixon-Clark
Alfie Dixon-Clark, aged 12, from Peterlee, has delivered over 1,000 ‘survival packs’ to other children, including chocolate, colouring pages and other fun items to help entertain and bring happiness during lockdown.
Alfie has used his own pocket money to buy items for the packs, and has also been active in supporting his peers with stress and mental health, running a project called Alf’s Happy Homework Academy.
In a personal letter to Alfie, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said:
“Every day I say thank you to someone in our country for showing kindness to others.
“So when I heard about all the fantastic activity packs which you have donated, I wanted to write to you!
“I am lost in admiration to learn that you have now delivered more than one thousand survival packs! You have brought some much treasured fun and happiness to so many other young people at a tough time.”
“I hope I can be a valued member of Points of Light, and I hope we can, together, inspire others to feel more positive, be more positive and act kindly in this world.”
