[O]ak Tree Animals’ Charity recently took the opportunity to thank Shirley Armstrong and Ann Betts who together have given over 26 years to the charity as volunteers.
Shirley and Ann, along with Eleanor run the onsite charity shop at Oak Tree Farm, sorting donations and preparing them for sale. Not only do they sort and manage stock, they also work tirelessly in preparation for the Oak Tree events and have helped raise thousands of pounds to support the animals in the Charity’s care. Frank Tebbutt, Honorary President of Oak Tree Animals’ Charity, presented both ladies with their long service awards as a small recognition for their immense efforts over the years.
Volunteer Co-ordinator Lotte Morgan said, “We are delighted to be able to recognise the outstanding service shown by Ann and Shirley throughout the years. Their hard work and dedication has helped us to care for many animals in our region. Our Volunteers are essential to the running of our Charity, working directly with the animals, and in our tearoom, charity shop at events and fundraising stalls and helping us care for our site and woodland. Without our volunteers we simply couldn’t achieve our objectives.”
