A Bromley woman received an award for her work with young disabled people from Princess Anne last week.

Gail Horner, who works for Nash College, in Croydon Road, Hayes, received the Lifelong Contribution Award from disabled charity Livability at a ceremony in central London.

A senior speech and language therapy assistant, Gail began her career at the college more than 22 years ago.

She spent her first two years working voluntarily before being offered a permanent role. Gail now delivers training to Nash staff in different aspects of communication and singing.

Gail said: “I am delighted to have received this award and would like to thank all my colleagues for nominating me.

“Nash College is a very special place and it is really rewarding to be able to help our young disabled people develop their skills in a supportive environment.”

The Princess Royal awards were created by Livability, who run Nash College, to recognise the outstanding contribution of its staff.
