Cara Perry personal High Sheriff of Leicestershire Award

It was my absolute pleasure to present Cara Perry with a (surprise) High Sheriff of Leicestershire Award for her outstanding dedication to help female survivors of sexual abuse sexual violence and rape through Jasmine house in Leicester.

I visited Jasmine house some months ago. I was so impressed by the service that they offer and the Tyler’s work that Kara does that I personally I gave her this award where other awards have come through nominations from the community.
