Whiting & Partner’s sponsors 2017 High Sheriff’s Awards

4th April 2017

Whiting & Partners sponsored the Lifetime Achievement Award category at the 2017 High Sheriff Awards.

In partnership with Suffolk Community Foundation, The High Sheriff, William Kendall held this year’s High Sheriff’s Awards for Suffolk on Thursday 23 March at The Hoffman Building in Snape Maltings. The awards were hosted by BBC Radio Suffolk presenter Lesley Dolphin and Suffolk Community Foundation’s Development Director Tim Holder.

The Lifetime Achievement Award was won by Grenville Clarke, who has given a lifetime to volunteering, to his love of birds and to the environment, and encouraged thousands of others to join him. David Overton, Sally Fogden and Pamela Bishop were highly commended in the category.

Philip Peters, Chairman of the firm, said: “Whiting & Partners has been part of the Suffolk community since 1928 and this is something we value and nurture. By getting involved local projects such as the High Sheriff’s Awards, we believe it is important to recognise the dedication of those who devote so much of their own time to the improvement of their community.”

Each winner received a trophy and certificate, with a cheque of up to £1,000 given to the community group or charity involved in each category. Each winner was presented with a small salver to keep, with the larger salver to be returned for next year’s event.
