HeeHaws Website Coordinator and Stationery Designer

For most of my working life, I worked as a graphic designer, but in the latter years, I worked for the NHS, in a psychiatric hospital, which was a very rewarding career change. I went from working on the dementia ward as an Assistant Practitioner, before, once again gravitating to creative activities and eventually running the pottery studio in the hospital, my most favourite job ever!

My husband and I took early retirement to relocate to France in 2019. I must say it was the best thing we have ever done and wish we had made the move years ago! However, learning the language, well it’s a ‘work in progress’.

I absolutely love animals and moving here has not only benefitted us but has also enhanced the quality of life for our dogs, who have 2.5 acres to run about in. We have since added a bunny and 6 cats to the household. The poor dogs were not too amused at first, but they now muddle along together and are often found in the same bed. Ours! 

We are very soon to become the proud parents of Maggie and Mabel from HeeHaws. I am so excited!

The first time I heard of HeeHaws was on a Facebook post. I clicked on the link and found they were asking for anyone with creative skills to assist in fundraising. I sent an email, which was answered enthusiastically, with an invitation to visit. After meeting all the donkeys, I knew I wanted to become involved with these beautiful animals.

As well as working on fundraising projects, I also enjoy volunteering 2 days a week, picking up poo, feeding, and, the best bit of all, brushing the donkeys, which they love, as well as getting in a few cheeky cuddles!

HeeHaws still need funds to pay for hay, food, vet bills, and farriers and also to rescue other neglected or abused donkeys. So please donate whatever you can, even the smallest amount makes a difference. ❤️
