Volunteer of the Year 2017
Each year the Trustees choose a volunteer who has shown dedication and loyalty to the charity, to receive this award. This year the award goes to Elsie Smith. Elsie became a volunteer in 2008, the same year as she adopted a dog. Over the years she has become involved in many ways. She is a home checker, who is always willing to go the extra mile travelling out of the area, if it means a dog gets a home. She fosters, working really hard to ensure that her dogs leave happy and well mannered. She helps in the office and can often be found at Helen’s House on her knees sorting through donations for the dogs. She is always on hand at the Dog Show and does collections. Elsie is always cheerful and deserves this recognition of her work.
