All of our volunteers and dogs are valued and they give a fantastic service to their local communities day in and day out but as is tradition at Crufts, we make some special awards to those volunteers who make an exceptional contribution to the Charity.

2020 Winners


Our top award, the Pam St. Clements trophy is awarded to a volunteer as recognition for going above and beyond their regular activities.  This year we we thrilled to be able to give this to Emma Piotowski and her family, Nico the Therapy Dog and Kenzie, Lexi and Harvy who are all TDN Cadets.


Emma and Nico from south Wales are regular visitors to Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital where they bring smiles, love and distractions from everyday life.  Recently Emma was called at short notice to to attend the Hospital to help make a video memory book for a child who was under going end of life care and the parents wanted Nico to be part of that memory.


Elsewhere, Kenzie, Lexi and Harvey regularly promote the Charity at fund raising events and school assembly and more notably at the Welsh Senedd.  They are all very active members of the Cadet team and we are pleased that the award could be given to the whole family.
