Congratulations to Mr Philip Ive and his Labradoodle dog Poppy who won "Volunteer of the Year Award" for their work in the Community with Pets As Therapy. They visit and bring joy to residents of Timber Grove in Rayleigh and members at the Harbour Club in Hullbridge. Somebody coping with a disability or illness often misses the love and companionship of an undemanding animal and Poppy's visits are great fun, but also meaningful and therapeutic.
