The High Sheriff of Suffolk, George Vestey, visited The Ferns in February for a tour of the facility. After an extensive chat with Karin Norman-Butler, Mr Vestey made the journey through the children’s section of the SARC, guided by Carol Studd, who explained the process through which clients travelled.
The Friends of the Ferns was nominated, and on the shortlist, for the High Sheriff’s Award in the category of Suffolk Voluntary Organisation of the Year. Although they did not win, they received a special certificate in recognition of their vital work in Suffolk’s voluntary sector – Suffolk Rebuilding Broken Lives Category.
