Harrier’s artistic talents put to the test

The Harrier Integrated Projects Team (IPT) at RAF Wyton has sent in the troops to lend a helping hand to Wood Green Animal Shelter in Godmanchester in the form of painting boards to brighten up the centre’s dog kennels.

The Harrier IPT chose to base its project on the animal shelter during the summer of 2001.

They approached the shelter, which suggested painting the boards to liven up the present plain grey walls of the kennelling block.

The shelter has initially received four pictures, which depict scenes involving some of the types of animals taken in Wood Green Animal Shelters. The team are now working on a further eight boards to brighten up the dogs’ stay in the kennels.

Chief Executive at Wood Green Animal Shelters, Dennis Baker OBE said “I know the Harrier Integrated Project Team from my days in the Royal Air Force, and I was really pleased when they asked if they could do something to help Wood Green. The hanging murals they have painted are fantastic. Not only are they well produced, but also the designs and colours will lighten the kennels and make them feel friendly and homely for the dogs while they are in our care. We are all very grateful for their efforts.”
