The chief executive of the ICE’s Benevolent Fund Kris Barnett has been awarded an OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours.
Barnett’s OBE came in recognition for her contributions in her line of work during her 20 years at the fund.

Barnett described the honour as an “unbelievable privilege”.
She added: “It was an unbelievable privilege to receive an OBE in the Queen’s birthday honours; it is great to have the work of the Ben Fund highlighted in this way.
“I have been so fortunate to have a brilliant team over the last 20 years – staff, Trustees and Visitors. This honour is for all of us.
“If you are a member of the ICE, and you or your family find yourselves in difficult circumstances, get in touch.
“Whether you’re struggling financially, looking for support with your mental health, or simply wish to proactively build your personal and financial resilience with our range of events, the Ben Fund has something for you.”
