Animal Rescue Cumbria
I currently give my time to Animal Rescue Cumbria, the Wainwright Shelter near Kendal. I photograph dogs playing and being exercised outside in the countryside and the cats and kittens in the shelter to help the staff to find them new homes.
Photos of the animals at Animal Rescue Cumbria can be found on my NEW photography website: sandyanimalphotographer.smugmug.com
I have 18 years experience of working for leading Cumbrian charitable trusts in a senior role as a designer,
photographer, illustrator and PR & marketing director.
I spent 12 amazing years at the Lakeland Arts Trust (Abbot Hall Art Gallery & Museum of Lakeland Life & Industry,
Kendal Museum and Blackwell, the Arts & Crafts House). I played an important part in securing the purchase of
Blackwell and I was heavily involved in the fundraising of £3.252 million, restoration and promotion of this beautiful
Arts & Crafts movement house.
Cartmel - Sheepy Village!
A PR and marketing campaign, promoting Cartmel - Sheepy Village, resulted in £11,000 fund sraised for our
local charity - Bay Search & Rescue.
Three friends and I created a trail of 32 colourful life-size fibreglass sheep around Cartmel in the summer of 2010.
We all gladly gave our professional services for free and I headed the PR and marketing campaign that received wide reaching press, radio and TV coverage.
I had enormous fun creating the logos, designs, illustrations and the official website: cartmel-sheepyvillage.com
'Working for this charity project for no fee, Sandy was unstoppable and got us an incredible amount of press
coverage, created a fun website and even washed up after the auction!... She was and is a key member of our
small team of four organisers, four friends. We had so much fun and we never dreamed we would raise as
much as £11,000 for Bay Search & Rescue.'
Richard English, The Cavendish Arms, Cartmel
'Overflowing with creative ideas and solutions, Sandy calmly rises to the challenge when it comes to problem solving, and removing obstacles.'
Mike Davis, Bay Search & Rescue
