After serving Animal Rescue Cumbria for 3 years as a trustee, the opportunity arose to become more involved as Interim General Manager
I first joined Animal Rescue in 1986 and had the pleasure of working for Alfred and Betty Wainwright and for John and Dorothy Estensen.
I have always loved animals and have worked within the charity sector for several years. I am excited to continue to help animals in my capacity as a fundraiser
I joined the team in February 2021, after moving back to Cumbria to be closer to family. I have worked in charity finance for nearly ten years with a range of different organisations
I joined Animal Rescue Cumbria initially to complete my work placement for a Canine Behaviour and Training degree in 2014.
I started at Animal Rescue Cumbria as a volunteer in 2016 for my college course placement. I came to the shelter one day a week for 2 years.
I joined Animal Rescue initially as a volunteer for my Duke of Edinburgh Award. I then started to volunteer after school one night a week.
I’ve had a passion for animals since a young age being raised on the family farm. I started volunteering at Animal Rescue Cumbria in 2018
We are fortunate in having over 60 dedicated volunteers who help us at the Shelter with cats, dogs, maintenance and administration, and also at our Pre-loved for Pets shop in Kendal. Meet some of them on our Volunteer page and see the valuable contributions they make to our work.
