A charity has congratulated a Haringey woman on her OBE.

Haringey Citizen’s Advice Bureau (CAB) has congratulated its chairman, Sharon Grant, on her appearance on the Queen's Birthday Honours list in recognition of her service to the community.

Lynn Hannah, chief executive at Haringey CAB, said: “We would like to congratulate Sharon on her achievement. She richly deserves this recognition.

“She has worked endlessly to support our services, staff and volunteers within Haringey CAB, as chairman of Healthwatch Haringey, and elsewhere in the local community.

“We are very proud and fortunate to have her skills, expertise and community connections to develop the organisation for the future.

“I would like to thank her for all the dedicated time and hard work she has generously given to me and the service.”

Ms Grant has voluntarily been the chairman of the board of trustees for the bureau since 2008.

Haringey CAB was announced as the mayoral charity by new mayor Cllr Kaushika Amin last Monday.
