Suffolk Community Foundation annual review and High Sheriff Awards ceremony took place on Tuesday 12 March 2024 at Trinity Park, Ipswich. Charities, community groups, public sector, and business leaders attended the event to celebrate the fantastic work being carried out across Suffolk. High Sheriff Mark Pendlington selected Bury Drop In to win one his High Sheriff Awards. Each year, the High Sheriff recognises four charities who they feel are making a huge contribution and a difference to people’s lives in Suffolk. This year’s winners are Room 4, Survivors in transition, the Hive, and Bury Drop In.

The tough economic climate and impact of the cost-of-living crisis has forced demand on services and increased the number of people attending drop in sessions.

Robert Green, chair of trustees, says, “we are deeply grateful to be awarded the High Sheriff Award alongside some truly exceptional organisations. Bury Drop In is, at its core, a volunteer community and this award is a reflection of the dedication and quality of our amazing team. I also want to acknowledge our guests who are an integral part of the Bury Drop In family”.
