Thank you, Frances


During October 2014 Mrs Frances Hawkes of Kent was on her way to nearby Southbourne to spend a weeks holiday when to the delight of Animals’ Voice Chairman and staff, Frances called in to deliver items she had been collecting for us to sell in our shop here in Fordingbridge.

Many members will recognise Frances from previous issues of our magazine and know of her charitable work for ourselves and the Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth, Devon.

Frances and her late husband Joe have supported Animals’ Voice since the 1970’s when they regularly travelled from Kent to Fordingbridge to meet the late Ted Cox, Founder Chairman of Animals’ Voice!

We are most grateful to Frances for the wonderful items she  donated for us to sell here in our shop and besides donating items for us to sell we hope Frances enjoyed her holiday whilst here in the south.
