The recently appointed chair of Three Rivers District Council (TRDC) recently hosted a social event at a Croxley pub to raise money for her chosen charity.
Councillor Debbie Morris held the Summer Social event at Croxley’s own Artichoke pub on June 29, all in aid of the charity she chose to fundraise for when she was selected as the new chair; Pets As Therapy (PAT).
At the event, Clare Devis, the charity’s chief executive, spoke about the importance of what the charity provides to schools, care homes, prisons and hospitals, where temperament-assessed pets are taken to these venues by volunteers to visit.
These visits have helped those suffering from all kinds of issues, from those dealing with anxiety and memory loss to children learning to read confidently.
Clare also called for more volunteers to join their team due to the large waiting list of places wanting a visit from a pet the charity has received.
The evening turned out to be a great success, with more than £1,000 being raised for PAT. Cllr Morris said: “I was absolutely delighted with the tremendous amount raised for this wonderful charity. Thank you to everyone who supported it.”
