A Gullane woman who founded an art therapy charity following the death of her daughter is a Tesco Mum of the Year Award winner.

Laura Young (45) will be presented with her Charitable Mum Award at a ceremony in The Savoy, London, on March 23 after her story was chosen from thousands of nominations sent in from all over the UK.
