OBE for vulnerable people volunteer

OBE for vulnerable people volunteer

A volunteer at an Inverness-shire forest school for vulnerable people has been honoured in the Queen’s birthday list.

Suzann Barr has been made an MBE for her work across the Highlands.

Mrs Barr is the learning co-ordinator at Abriachan Forest School and works with young people and adults.

The forest school works with them to promote personal development through outdoor study.

The mother of four, who stays in Abriachan herself, said she was “stunned” to find out about her nomination.

She said: “I am very pleased. I am stunned that somebody thought of me and made the effort to nominate me.

“I have no idea who did it but I am very grateful.

“I have worn many different hats while working with children, but it has always been as part of a fantastic team of very positive people.

“I am humbled to have been singled out, but this award is for all of them.”

Mrs Barr is a retired secondary school science teacher and volunteering with youth groups in the Highlands since the mid-1980s.

She has worked with Abriachan Forest School since it opened in 2004.

She is married and has four children.
