I always wanted to be a vet, animal mad from an early age an elderly jack Russell named Nellie was a great pal. However, it was not meant to be…..I was not clever enough and certainly not brave enough. My career took a very different path and I spent my working life with children and their families.
When the time came for me to “retire” I decided that I wanted to do some voluntary work with animals and chose Holly Hedge as I had been involved with the charity many years previously and had helped with fundraising. In my previous work I had always enjoyed working with people and felt that I could combine this with my love of animals. I now work as a volunteer on the reception desk, where every day is different and brings with it challenges and at the same time huge rewards. When animals in our care find their “forever” homes with loving families it is just great! There certainly is a lot of happiness but sometimes sadness, it comes with the territory.
Everyone who works at Holly Hedge is passionate about what they do and are committed to doing the very best for the animals in their care. This is why I so enjoy being involved with Holly Hedge and being a part of this great charity.
