Norfolk charity Nelson's Journey has unveiled its new patron as it marks 20 years of supporting the county's bereaved children and young people.

Nick Farrow is the founder of Farrows, the design agency which in 1997 helped to devise and illustrate Nelson, the charity's mascot, and has also led its rebrand in 2012.

Simon Wright, chief executive, said: 'We are delighted that Nick has agreed to become a patron of our charity. Having been involved since our inception, it seems appropriate that his appointment helps mark the beginning of our 20th year. We appreciate the time and enthusiasm he has invested in our charity to date and we look forward to the future with him holding a more official role.'

Mr Farrow is also the national president of the Royal Warrant Holders Association, and his agency has held a Royal Warrant since 2003.

He said: 'Nelson's Journey is a fabulous charity that has been supporting Norfolk's wider community for 20 years. Myself and our creative agency Farrows have been proud to be part of this success from the beginning.

'It is now a great honour to be asked to become a patron to celebrate such a significant anniversary.'
