A woman who was bullied at school and had a spell staying a hostel for homeless people has received recognition from a national education organisation after transforming her life through study.
Chrissy Abraham, 34, from Guildford, has won NIACE’s Learning to Achieve Regional Award after completing English, Maths and IT courses run by Surrey County Council’s adult learning service.
