The volunteer led Freshfields Animal Rescue Centre has won a top national award with the help of the Year of the Volunteer Campaign
The Ince Blundell based rescue centre won the Charity Today Magazine’s ‘Animal Welfare Charity of the Year’ award after residents across #MySefton were asked to nominate them on social media through the Year of the Volunteer.
Debbie Hughes, PR coordinator for Freshfields, said:
“This prestigious award recognises the selfless dedication and profound compassion of our incredible staff team, who transform the lives of abused, abandoned and neglected animals every day.
“To win the Animal Welfare Charity of the Year award is an absolute honour. We’ve been bowled over by the level of support from our friends and supporters and genuinely moved to receive so many lovely messages.
“That in itself was encouraging and moving, to see how much you value and respect our work. We can’t thank each and every one of you enough.
“There is no doubt that with more and more animals arriving at our door every day, our devoted staff team will be working harder than ever in 2018.
“This is their award, and the national recognition it brings will benefit abused, neglected animals in the North West for years to come.”
