This week sees our founder, Claire Furness, as the worthy recipient of a British Citizen Award (BCAe) for Services to Education. Upon hearing the news Claire said:-
“Abberley Care Farm started as my dream 12 years ago, I just wanted to put my head on my pillow at night hoping I had made a difference… I had no idea it would come to something like this. I feel truly honoured to have been awarded British Citizen Award for services to education . Thank you from the bottom of my heart to so many of my wonderful students, parents, Fred Holland, my amazing daughters, Tillie and Anna, for nominating me with such kind testimonials, my Mum Barbara, Stephen,
and all the staff here for always supporting me. You have blown me away”
As soon as government restrictions allow, Claire will be attending a celebration at the Palace of Westminster along with other winners of this esteemed award.
