You may know about my passionate and active interest in animal welfare issues and of my charity Save The Asian Elephants www.stae.org.
I was thrilled to learn recently that I had been nominated as a Finalist in the inaugural year of the Animal Star Awards for my charity and animal welfare work.
The announcement of the overall Winner took place at the splendid Mandolay Hotel in Guildford last month – a great occasion.
To say that I was still further thrilled to be announced as the Winner of the award for Animal Hero of the Year would be an understatement. There were some 850 entrants, judged by a panel of referees of great eminence in the animal welfare world. I am very grateful to be honoured with this award, because it does so much to raise awareness of the desperate cause of the beleaguered and brutalised Asian elephants for whom all at Save The Asian Elephants work so hard.
