Town Pastors honoured at Stars of Suffolk Awards
At The East Anglian Daily Times and Ipswich Star "Stars of Suffolk" awards last Thursday, Town Pastors were honoured with the "Volunteers of the Year" Award. The nomination read: "The Town Pastors of Suffolk continue to make a huge difference in communities across Suffolk. They patrol the streets at night, helping people in need - particularly the vulnerable. In one case this year, they were the first at the scene of a stabbing in Ipswich and helped the victim. The Pastors have operated in Suffolk for 11 years now and patrol 10 towns, mainly on weekend nights, as well as special events including Latitude Festival"
