NEWC Secretary receives Blue Cross award

The British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) Welfare Award 2002, sponsored by The Blue Cross, has been presented to Elaine Cannon, Executive Secretary of the National Equine Welfare Council (NEWC).

The Award, which was introduced by BEVA in conjunction with The Blue Cross animal welfare charity two years ago, is a formal recognition of significant contributions made by veterinary surgeons and others to equine welfare.

It will be presented to Mrs Cannon at the Opening Ceremony of the BEVA Annual Congress on Thursday 12 September 2002 by the President of BEVA Professor Sandy Love BVMS PhD MRCVS and The Blue Cross President Dr Alastair Porter CBE.

NEWC is a representative body for 55 equine organisations, all with considerable experience in equine welfare. The Council recently received acclaim for re-writing the code of practice for equine welfare charities. Elaine Cannon has been NEWC’s executive secretary for the past three years.

The Blue Cross is Britain's pet charity, providing information, advice and practical support for pet and horse owners. Through its network of animal adoption centres it rehomes thousands of animals each year. Its hospitals provide veterinary care for the pets of people who cannot afford private vets' fees.
