Arsenal legend Thierry Henry crowned a community hero at a special presentation at the Emirates stadium.
Robert Lall, who works at Highgate Mental Health Centre in Dartmouth Park Hill, was handed the accolade from the Gunners’ all-time top scorer.
Mr Lall has worked with Arsenal in the community for the past three years, helping to run a twice- weekly football programme for people with mental health problems – offering them a chance to be active and socialise.
The award was handed out as part of the Barclays Community Ticket Programme and also included a free match ticket and a mention in the matchday programme.
Mr Lall said: “It’s great to have the work that we do with service users recognised and to know how much it is valued.”
