Stuart joins Thornberry Animal Sanctuary
Rotherham-based film producers, LensGo Visual Media, have pledged to support Thornberry Animal Sanctuary as founder and director Stuart Turner joins as a trustee.
The award-winning agency has been creating films for Thornberry since 2018, which has to lead to several successful fundraising campaigns.
Stuart, LensGo Director, said: “If asked what I love more, dogs or filming, it would be hard to choose. We rescued a French bulldog, Frank, who’s a loyal mascot for the LensGo team. Since working closely with Thornberry, I’ve come to realise how much resource is needed behind the scenes to nurture and rehome the animals in their care. The work Thornberry do has saved thousands of animals and it’s a cause that’s close to my heart.”
The sanctuary, based in Dinnington, rehabilitate and rehome animals including dogs, cats, horses, pigs and rabbits. Like many charities, sourcing vital funding is an ongoing challenge. Rising overheads and a never-ending demand for their services mean that resources are tight.
Ged Jenkins-Omar, Thornberry’s Fundraising Manager, said: “We’re delighted that Stuart has joined Thornberry Animal Sanctuary as a trustee. The support we’d already received from LensGo had already had a big impact – using video has helped us to communicate what we do and why it is important. We have also been awarded grants to improve the sanctuary for our animals due to the videos produced by LensGo.”
