We have since been informed by the regional paper that Shirley has won the award.
After receiving the news Shirley said: “I’m touched and extremely proud to have been successful.
“But the team at If U Care Share Foundation work tirelessly to prevent and support those impacted by suicide and our work is only possible through the efforts of the amazing people in our team and the people we support.“
