CHATSHOW host Trisha Goddard presented charity workers with an award in recognition of their high standard of mental healthcare.

The popular television star praised Orpington charity Bromley Mind at a ceremony held in Birmingham last Wednesday for the services it provides, particularly for those suffering from dementia.

The organisation helps over 1,700 people each year at sites in Bromley, Beckenham and Orpington.

Mrs Goddard said: "Losing money, work or a business is devastating enough. Feeling as though you are losing your mind as a result can be the final kick when you're down for the count.

"Organisations like Bromley Mind focus on helping us to look after our mental health and are seeing increasing numbers of people needing their services while their budgets are often decreasing.

"Therefore what they've managed to achieve is doubly impressive."

Chief executive of Bromley Mind Sandi Lowing said: "We were all delighted to hear that we were given the top level award for quality management.

"Everyone in the organisation has played a part. Our service users help us set priorities that are important to them, staff and volunteers are totally focused and care enormously about their work, and trustees take the long view and make sure resources go where they make the most difference.
