Her story began just over 4 years ago when Anne was out at Morrisons Penzance, doing her shopping and she came across our very own “Mr Mark” Holroyd.
Mark was the Fundraising Manager for the charity at the time, Mark worked tirelessly for the charity and did a wonderful job of laying the solid foundations on which the current Fundraising Manager, Ian Butler had to build on. Anne spoke with Mark at length about who we are, and what we do across Cornwall.
Her words when she left were:- “If you are lucky I MAY do a dog show for you”
Well Anne did do a dog show, and another, and another, cream teas, coffee mornings, sponsored walk’s followed and as they say the rest is history. Anne hasn’t just raised vital funds, but she has also done something that is equally if not more important for us, and that is to raise our awareness across Cornwall and how we can save the NHS money across Cornwall.
To date Anne has raised the outstanding sum of £18,500.00 for us.
Anne has been a phenomenal fundraiser and has been doing so for over 40 years. It is important to recognize not just the fundraising efforts she has gone to on our behalf but for other charities that have benefitted from her hard work such as The Stroke Appeal, Cornwall Animal Hospital, The Badger Trust, Cats Rescue, Cornwall Air Ambulance, Cornwall Hospice Care and so much more. Every single week the dog training classes that she hosts, all money is donated to animal charities or good causes/ charities across the County and beyond.
Anne is our very dear friend and we only had so many ways that our Fundraising manager could say thank you on behalf of the charity for such tremendous hard work to host these events and fundraise.
But there was only one way that we could say the biggest heartfelt thank you and to ensure that no matter where we go, or the journey we take, our friend is with us.
Our BMW 1200 RT-p BMW 1 will proudly bear the name “Annie”
