Lieutenancy Certificate of Appreciation

On the 6th September, Studio Clark & Co, interior designers in Cobham, received a Surrey Lieutenancy Certificate of Appreciation presented to Lucy Clark by Deputy Lieutenant, Charlotte Kneer. 

During the pandemic a new refuge was opened to support more victims of domestic abuse. The building was disused and in disrepair. Lucy volunteered to transform the day room at the refuge. This involved coordinating and sourcing a workforce, and all of the equipment and materials needed to transform the space. At the end of the project the women and their children living at the refuge were overjoyed with their new space.
