Angela Samata, Merseyside Woman of the Year 2015
Angela Samata was given the award during a ceremony at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Liverpool city centre.
Former Walker Art Gallery employee Angela, who recently presented BBC documentary Life After Suicide, lost her partner Mark 11 years ago when he took his own life.
She went on to lead the Liverpool group of SoBS, an organisation that now helps more than 7,000 people through 50 support groups across the country, and was its chair for four years.
Angela also jointly won the Women of Courage category at the awards ceremony, attended by more than 450 people.
Well done Angela.
