A mother whose daughter was killed in the London bombings received an award for her work establishing a trust in her daughter's name.

Mavis Hyman's daughter, Miriam, 32, was on a bus in Hackney on July 7, 2005, when 18-year-old Hasib Hussain blew himself up on the upper deck, sitting directly behind her.

Since then Mrs Hyman, her late husband John and Miriam's older sister, Esther, channelled their grief into establishing the Miriam Hyman Memorial Trust, which aims to help both young people requiring eye care services and provide teaching resources about the dangers of violent extremism.

Mrs Hyman, who came out of retirement to start the trust, said: "It remains unbearable to think that Miriam could have lost her life senselessly; which compels us to turn things round and do whatever we can to redress the negative situation.

"I accept with deep gratitude and also in appreciation of the unstinting contribution of countless people who are continuing to give freely of their skills, time and energy to the Miriam Hyman Memorial Trust."

The resources, called Miriam's Vision, look at the attacks through the eyes of how Miriam lost her life, directly showing the effects of extremism, and was developed in partnership with UCL and Miriam's former school, Copthall School in Barnet.

As well as this, the trust is working on a project which will help bring hope and healing to young people who require eye care, in a centre which will be Miriam's "living memorial".

Mrs Hyman is the 30th recipient of the Topland Business Luncheon award presented to outstanding individuals who, often against personal adversity, make significant contributions to others around them, and has been awarded to people such as co-founder of the Alzheimer’s Society Morella Kayman MBE.

Sol Zakay, executive chairman and CEO of Topland Group, said: "We are delighted to have had the honour to present this well-deserved award to Mavis. As a parent myself, I can’t imagine the grief and sense of loss that Mavis and her family have been through.

"I have an immense sense of admiration for Mavis and the work she is doing both through the delivery of often life saving eye care treatment and the work closer to home on our schools.

"Learning about terrorism through the story of one victim will, I am sure, help young people to think about the future, a future that they can help shape not only for themselves and their local community but for the country as a whole."
