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 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 always had a fundraising passion for causes close to my heart and have raised many £1,000’s over the years for Cancer Research, I also quite like a bit of mud! I joined St Giles Animal Rescue about 2 years ago as part of the fund raising committee, then became Sponsorship Coordinator and now recently a Trustee.
Originally from the South East I moved to Somerset around 20 years ago. Having always had a love of animals from an early age and lucky enough to have had dogs, cats and horses as part of the family growing up my love for all things furry and four legged has only grown.
Being part of something that creates happy afters for so many animals is a dream role.
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.
