Dedicated animal lovers receive long service awards


ANIMAL LOVERS working at The Blue Cross hospitals in Grimsby and in London have received long service awards for their commitment to animal welfare.

Kennel manager Jennifer Friggieri, based at The Blue Cross animal hospital in Grimsby, received a 20-year award, while a 30-year award went to Janice Hunsley, nurse manager at the same hospital.

Three animal lovers based at Britain’s oldest animal hospital, The Blue Cross in Victoria in London, also received long service awards for their commitment to animal welfare.

Nurse manager Caryll Oberst, who has since retired, once said that one of the pleasures of working for The Blue Cross was knowing that the charity provided veterinary treatment for those animals whose owners would not otherwise be able to afford it. Stuart Broadfoot, senior laboratory technician also received a long service award.

Dick Voigt, director of veterinary services at The Blue Cross, who himself received a long service award, said: “It is wonderful that we have such dedicated hospital staff. These people have a real commitment to the welfare of animals and we hope that their work with The Blue Cross continues for many years”.
