The High Sheriff of Suffolk, Roz Eminson is once again teaming up with Tim Holder and the team at Suffolk Community Foundation for a third annual ‘Suffolk Day Road Trip’ this year visiting Felixstowe, Bury St Edmunds and Ipswich with a focus on introducing new and less well known charities and community groups to the County.
Following in the footsteps of former High Sheriffs Geoffrey Probert and George Vestey, Roz joins Suffolk Community Foundation, a founding partner in launching the first Suffolk Day three years ago, to shine a light on the thousands of volunteers who are behind so much of what is great about our caring county of Suffolk.
“Since taking over as High Sheriff in April, I have already been out and about visiting many organisations in Suffolk,” Roz Eminson explained, “I’ve watched with interest to see how fast the energy around Suffolk Day has spread around the County and it’s an absolute privilege to be out for the day with Tim and team to say a really big thank you to the extraordinary people we are going to meet and to continue telling their story in various ways throughout my year in office.’
Roz and Tim will join BBC Radio Suffolk presenters live on air and throughout the day.
‘We will focus on about 16 charities and community groups this year,’ says Tim Holder, ‘but are going to dig deeper into the grassroots of the County to raise some awareness about the new and sparky people who are creating new projects and perhaps having their story heard for the first time. It’s so important for Suffolk to have new energy, ideas and initiatives being created to address the needs of our county both today and in the future.’
