Friday July 7th, 2017, was an
amazing and exciting day for the Gambia Horse and Donkey Trust when its director, Heather
Armstrong, was given an immense honour by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons by
being made an Honorary Associate.
Heather said, "I feel very honoured and
privileged to be given this award and I shall treasure it. The GHDT is the total of all
its parts and I feel that the people who support us and enable us to do the work that we
do, the wonderful veterinary volunteers and practices who have trained our staff,
fundraised for us, donated equipment and our fantastic team in The Gambia must share some
of the credit."
For a tiny charity such as ours, this is an
incredible honour. We would like to give our very sincere thanks to The Royal College of
Veterinary Surgeons for the award and to all the veterinary professionals who have
assisted and supported us over the years.
