The High Sheriff of Cambridgeshire, Richard Pemberton, hosted his awards ceremony recognising the work of charitable groups supporting children and young people on 14 November 2017.
In Cambridgeshire, the High Sheriff’s awards scheme was established more than 15 years ago. It recognises achievement, and awards grants to projects involving young people in positive activities, which benefit their communities. During the 2017/18 term of office, 20 groups have been awarded grants by the High Sheriff.
Simon Humphrey, Chair of Cambridgeshire Community Foundation, welcomed grant recipients, donors, and volunteers alike, thanking them for their attendance and contribution to the community. He went on to introduce the High Sheriff, Richard Pemberton, who then presented each group with a certificate to commemorate their award.
