Lord Lieutenant of Essex agrees to become Patron of EssexSAR

Essex Search and Rescue are extremely proud to announce that Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant of Essex, Mrs Jennifer Tolhurst, has accepted our invitation to become the charity’s Patron. The Lord Lieutenant is Her Majesty the Queen’s personal representative in the county of Essex, and the first woman to be appointed to the office in the county since it was established in the 1500s. As a charity we are privileged to have such an esteemed Patron and active volunteer to act as our ambassador. We look forward to working with Mrs. Tolhurst over the forthcoming years to promote the lifesaving work of our charity.
