As poverty levels in the UK increase, the work of people fighting to improve the lives of the most impoverished is being highlighted.

This year’s BP Community Champion Women of the Year award has been given to Juliet Sanders, the founder and chief executive officer of the registered charity Feeding Families. The organization helps people too mentally or physically ill to get to food banks and those for whom the food banks are just not enough.
