Find out more at www.aht.org.uk Kevin Clements, our Director of Fundraising and Marketing, on why the AHT needs your support… Since joining the Animal Health Trust in June 2017, I have been continually inspired by the dedication of our staff and the complexity of our work here, as the leaders of science and care for animals. I’m an animal lover myself, having grown up with Border Collies and Miniature Schnauzers, and I now have a five-year-old daughter who is obsessed with horse riding and dogs! Through this, I know how much companion animals enhance our own wellbeing, and I’m now able to see first-hand the vital role that the AHT plays in ensuring these animals – our family members as so many of us regard them ̶ have access to the very best care and developments in science and research. Having spent the last 12 years raising income and awareness for many causes, including hospices, mental health projects, and neurological care centres; I can safely say that the AHT is the most unique organisation I have ever had the privilege to work for. The impact of our work is global, often having a major influence on the welfare of animals internationally. Kevin Clements nationally ̶ our clear goal is to increase voluntary income from £3 million a year to £5 million by 2021. A big challenge, the reason for this is clear. So that we can keep up-to-date with our leading research and care; offering the very best treatments, procedures and cures for animal injuries and diseases, and to also help prevent life-limiting illnesses in animals - for many years to come. This will only be achieved by continuing to work closely with individuals, groups, companies and charitable trusts – and, alongside my great team, we are looking forward to making lots of new friends as we develop our profile as the animal charity to support and follow. However, one crucial element which still has a relatively low profile is our brand as a charity. This has a challenging impact on our ability to raise money to support our work. Put simply – the AHT relies on the generosity and support of donors for us to continue paving the way for the essential work taking place each day from our headquarters in Suffolk. To find out more about how you can support us, including the list of some exciting, well-established fundraising events, such as our Newmarket Race Day, kindly put on by a local voluntary committee, Fellowship Receptions at Buckingham Palace, Golf Days, and our flagship event, the UK Equestrian Awards, do have a look at our website at www.aht.org.uk/events My role now as the Director of Fundraising and Marketing is to grow both our fundraising income and also the general awareness of the AHT’s amazing work.
