St Giles Animal Rescue Charity trustees share ultimate responsibility for governing and directing how our charity is managed and run. Our Trustees use their skills and experience to support St Giles Animal Rescue, helping us achieve our aims.
I moved to North Curry from Oxfordshire just under 3 years ago. I was introduced to St Giles when adopting my pug puppy (Binky). Needless to say, we are now inseparable. I have gone on to adopt another pug (Tommy)!!
Having seen the work that St Giles were doing, I knew I had to become involved and help in any way I could.
I am a qualified aromatherapist and reflexologist. Working from home means I am lucky enough to spend lots of time in the great outdoors. I love gardening, walking my pugs and am currently trying to teach myself how to sew!
I work as a Tax Advisor and I am continuously thinking of ways to save money within the charity to ensure both cats and dogs get the best life whilst in rescue with St Giles, which is money well spent in my opinion!
I relax by watching sports with both of our St Giles rescue dogs and a packet of good quality sweets.
St Giles completed our home by giving us our dream dogs so being a Trustee for the charity means I can help other dogs and people find the same happiness.”
I work within the Ambulance Service and when off duty I spend my time either at the gym, walking our dogs around the endless countryside and indulging in delicious food
I have now adopted three lurchers from St Giles and if I could afford a larger garden or perhaps a paddock, the sky’s the limit!
I have a 30+ year Commercial business background, mainly in Aviation and Information Technology, originally based around Heathrow, now happily settled in Somerset, working from home for a U.S. based software company.
My wife and I are both huge animal lovers and we have adopted three dogs from St Giles over the years. We have always admired the fantastic work done by the Linnells and how things have improved at the kennels over the years.
Volunteering is an enjoyable way of helping a rescue animal and can be very rewarding to both you and the animal. We have a range of volunteering roles from dog walking and cat cuddling through to helping raise much needed funds or home visiting. You will meet like minded people and enjoy developing or learning new skills.
