Cruse North wales volunteer Laraine Davies has been awarded the High Sheriff Award for Clwyd, Wales for her work as a volunteer supporting bereaved families with Cruse North Wales.
The High Sheriff Awards were launched in 2013 to recognise individuals or voluntary/community organisations or groups (with charitable aims) that have made an outstanding contribution to their respective communities.
Laraine joined Cruse North Wales in 2006 providing one-to-one support and progressed to becoming a supervisor. In 2015 and because of increasing demand, she formed a new branch in Flintshire. Here is she joint Vice Chair as well as the Flintshire branch co-ordinator.
The office of High Sheriff was established in 1974 as part of the creation of the country of Clwyd in Wales following the Local Government Act 1972.
