NCDL canine carer wins medal of excellence
– and so does NCDL Evesham!

NCDL Canine Carer Lis Witts has been awarded the City and Guilds Medal of Excellence for her performance in the NVQ Animal Care Level 2. In recognition of her great achievement, the NCDL gave Lis their very own certificate of merit at the charity’s Annual General Meeting on 13th June.

Lis is the first of the charity’s Canine Carers to complete their NVQ level 2 in Animal Care. Lis has worked as a Canine Carer at the NCDLs Evesham re-homing centre for around four years. She was one of just 120 pupils across the country to be awarded a Medal of Excellence. Studying for her NVQ in Animal Care (level 2) during 2000, Lis eventually completed the course in December 2001.

Lis said: ‘I am delighted to have won the Medal of Excellence as I absolutely love all animals, not just dogs. It is especially exciting to receive the special award from the NCDL as it shows that they too are proud of my achievement.’

As well as receiving a special certificate from the chairman of the NCDL, Philip Prain, Lis also attended an awards ceremony in the Marriott hotel, London, on the 16th July having travelled from her home in Worcestershire especially for the event, leaving her three rescue dogs safely at home.

Lis’s individual achievement also reflects well on the rehoming centre where she works, and NCDL Evesham has received a certificate of excellence.
