The mother of a young Glaswegian killed in a terrorist attack in Tel Aviv in 2002 has been honoured by the Prime Minister for the volunteering charity she founded in his name.

Marsha Gladstone is the one of the latest recipients of the Points of Light award, recognising those who inspire others and make a difference within their communities.

Ms Gladstone set up the Yoni Jesner Foundation in memory of her late son's commitment to social action.

It has encouraged more than 1,500 teenagers to undertake at least 20 hours of volunteering and funded 15 young people to take a gap year volunteering in Israel.

In a letter to Ms Gladstone, Theresa May wrote: You have responded with remarkable strength to the tragic loss of your son. You should be immensely proud of the work of the Yoni Jesner Foundation."

Ms Gladstone said: When you do what you are doing, you arent thinking about awards. But awards like this encourage other people to get involved and do good. At times like the present, with awful things happening across the world, this award is in some way a rebalance.
