24th November, 2010 Lyndhurst Fire Station

From one emergency service to another. Jenny and I were invited to the fire station today for the formal commissioning of the Animal Rescue Tender which has been sponsored by the Petplan Charity. Jim's talk about the role of the Team in national and international training of fire officers and trauma vets was a good reminder of the serious purpose behind all the work that they do. Louise Minchin from BBC South who is also involved in Real Rescues came along too. To support them please see the Friends of Hampshire Animal Rescue Team page on Facebook.
Last week saw the team heading off to accept the award of the Tarquin Cup from the British Horse Society, talking about the importance of animal rescue to heads of service across the country as well as defending their funding; a busy busy time. Thank goodness for organisations such as Petplan that saw the passion and dedication within the team and agreed to support them.
