12:00pm Saturday 15th February 2014 in News
A mum whose twin brother killed himself four years ago has begun to help others also affected by suicide.
Sarah Pearson, 46, of Moorhen Avenue, St Lawrence, was left devastated when her brother, Stephen Ambury, took his own life in August 2009.
She created Suicide Informal Support (SIS) in memory of her brother and held the first meeting last week at West Maldon Community Centre, in Sunbury Way.
The next meeting will be on March 5 at the West Maldon Community Centre from 7.30pm until 9.30pm.
