Animals mean, bring – and give – so much to us, hugely reinforced for me in my time with my Westie as ‘Pets as Therapy’ visitors to elderly patients in hospital and patients in hospice care. .So ensuring love, care and an appropriate home for animals is our responsibility as human beings.

I have hands- on, senior management, governance and service development experience in both public sector and independent/commercial sector care organisations in the UK and overseas.

I have worked with charities and volunteers and have been a charity trustee.
This range of experience, the principles of which are very similar to those of animal care, will, I hope, be of use to the Board, the staff and the animals of Animal Rescue Cumbria, whose vision, objectives and reputation are rooted in excellent animal care.

I look forward to the opportunity as a trustee with Animal Rescue Cumbria.
