Who’s won the 21st Annual Quiz?

We’re delighted to announce the winners of the infamous                Bentham & District Pet Rescue Quiz.

First prize: Alison Ratcliffe of Ingleton; 2nd prize: Pamela Davies of Burnley; 3rd prize: Shirley Brown of High Bentham and 3 lucky prize draws (all with correct answers):  Carole Capstick of Ingleton, Liz Hornby of Horton in Ribblesdale & Susie Holden of Settle.

Thank you to everyone who took part.


This quiz, like the previous 20, was set by Peter Marshall.  Sadly     Peter died in April this year, aged 85.  His will be a very hard act to follow but we hope to have a similar quiz for you in 2020, set by      another supporter of Bentham & District Pet Rescue.

Celebrating 21 years of rescues!

Set up by Val Marshall in 1997 to help pets and people in North             Craven, the work of Bentham & District Pet Rescue is as important now as it was then.

To celebrate, past and present supporters gathered at Bentham Golf Club recently to enjoy afternoon tea. Chairman Rob Bullock spoke about the hundreds of animals that have been cared for during the last two decades and found new homes.  He also recognised that volunteers have made a valuable contribution over the years and continue to raise much needed funds to enable the charity’s work to continue.


A presentation was made to founder and Honorary President, Val Marshall, pictured here with her husband, Peter, a former Treasurer of the organisation.


Also, the award for ‘Volunteer of the Year’ was presented to Louise Pauley (pictured with Rob Bullock). This is a new trophy, made by Stonegate Glass of Ingleton, to commemorate dedicated volunteer Marion Casey of Settle who died suddenly last year.
