LIVERPOOL-based animal charity, Freshfields Animal Rescue have been presented with Charity Today’s Animal Welfare Award.
The hard-working team were paid a special visit by #UKCharityWeek founder Lee Rayment who made a 600-mile round trip to Merseyside to present the award on behalf of the Charity Today publication.
The prestige award which was last year won by Battersea Dogs & Cats Home is highly-sought after by animal charities and is seen as significant coup mainly as it is voted for by members of the public.
Lee was shown around the centre by the charities Fundraising Manager John Rullo and Debbie Hughes who introduced him to the animals with a talking starling very keen to make himself known!
Charity Today Executive Editor & #UKCharityWeek founder, Lee B. Rayment, said: “I am delighted for the team at Freshfields, they are a very hard working charity and deserve all the credit that is coming their way.
“I would like to thank John and Debbie for taking the time to show us around the centre, and I look forward to revisiting them soon.”
‘My Proudest Moment’
Debbie Hughes, Grants & PR Coordinator at Freshfields told Lee Rayment ‘in the five years I have been here this is my proudest moment’ adding that ‘it was lovely just to be able to make the final two with the Mayhew let alone win it!’
The Charity Today Awards celebrate charities and individuals across the UK who go that extra mile for others.
The Charity Today publication works with charities across the UK and sees first hand the fantastic work that goes on to help improve the lives and welfare of both people and animals. These awards provide an opportunity to recognise the dedication and commitment of charities and individuals with an incredibly meaningful public ‘thank you’.
There is no entry fee and no lavish ceremony that will set the charities back thousands of pounds in table fees. Just straight down the middle recognition as voted for by the British public.
