Not every local charity can claim to have an international superstar as their Patron but we can, in the shape of dog loving Tony Iommi, who has rocked the world as lead guitarist of Black Sabbath! Tony and his family have supported us for many years and we are very grateful for all he does for us.
Please keep supporting our charity in any way you can so we can give homeless, neglected and abused animals a second chance of love."
Our charity is governed by a board of Trustees comprised of:
Patricia Bernie Mohammed Mourad Hassan Labib David Scott Katrina Palmer Jason Waine
They dedicate their own time, expertise and the benefit of their professional knowledge on a voluntary basis and are ultimately responsible for the vision, mission, good governance and management of the charity.
All of our Trustees are passionate about animal welfare and are committed to our sustainability and development.
Between them they have a wealth of business experience with specialist skills in law, veterinary knowledge, project management, HR, and international animal welfare.
Would YOU be interested in becoming a trustee?
Trustee Directors serve on a voluntary/unpaid basis and the work can be demanding in terms of time. For this reason, the position would ideally suit someone who has free time available; for example a retired person.
Our current Board members have a range of different skills and we would be very pleased to hear from anyone who feels they have a specific skill to offer us. However, a common sense approach and a keenness to support the Sanctuary are the most important things we are looking for.
Our Staff & Volunteers
Our charity is operated by a hardworking, passionate team of staff and volunteers, led by Centre Manager Ross Howard.
Our animal care team have achieved high levels of professional qualifications in animal welfare and have decades of combined knowledge and experience working with a wide range of animals. We have specialists who lead on specific types of animals and we regularly use the services of external behavioural experts for dog rehabilitation. We are also lucky enough to have a fantastic shop manager who looks after our loyal, dedicated team of shop volunteers.
They are supported by a team of office staff who look after our fundraising, finances, marketing and customer service.
We couldn’t help as many animals as we do without our team of volunteers who we rely on for regular help with animal care, office support and fundraising.
Everyone plays vitally important roles to ensure our sustainability and development so we can care for as many animals as possible.
