Cathy Yelf, chief executive of the Macular Society, said: “The commitment and dedication Denise has shown in caring for people with macular disease is clear from the

tremendous feedback we’ve received about her work.

“She thoroughly deserves this award and I’d like to congratulate her on this excellent achievement.”
