New Year Honours: Stop the Traffick's CEO Ruth Dearnley is appointed OBE

Cherie would like to congratulate Ruth Dearnley who has been awarded an OBE in the New Year Honours List, for her hard work and unfailing courage as CEO of the charity Stop the Traffik.

As a close friend, and a patron of the charity, Cherie was delighted to see recognition for Ruth's services in campaigning for an end to human trafficking in the UK, which is tragically a growing crime.

"I was amazed, shocked and humbled when I found out about this award!" said Ruth "I am thinking of the award as recognition of Stop the Traffik and the many people who work around the world to try and raise awareness and stop human trafficking."

Ruth said that she was looking forward to her day at the Palace with her family, husband Mark and two grown up children, Esther and Charlie.
