A GREAT grandmother from Gaydon has been awarded an OBE in His Majesty the King’s first birthday honours.

Sue Cox received her award for her work with addiction in many of the country’s toughest prisons as well as the NHS, and community charities.

Sue, who has six children, three grandchildren and one great grandson, has created and delivered a unique recovery programme which has been adopted by HMPS and NHS using a combination of Chinese medicine,Neuroscience, Lived experience and natural wellbeing techniques.

She has personally taught 26,000 healthcare workers, and more recently, has extended her teaching to prisoners, creating a wellbeing coaching programme, which empowers the prisoners to help their peers.

Sue also used to have a clinic in Park Street, Leamington.

She said she was unbelievably honoured to be awarded this accolade, and is proud of her partnership with HMPS and plans to continue her work with renewed vigour.
