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.

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.
