A woman has been recognised for going ‘above and beyond’ for the people of Sutton.

Carol Jacques, from Carshalton, is one of 67 people who won the Halifax Giving Extra Award for her work running local charity the Sutton Mental Health Foundation.

She has worked for the charity, which supports people with mental illness, for 20 years and said: “The charity relies on a whole team of people, so this isn’t just about me but the whole team’s hard work supporting the community.”
