CCST welcomes new trustee
CCST welcomes new trustee;
The Trustees are delighted to announce that they have invited Stewart Donald to become a Trustee in place of Norma Murray who retired at the end of 2018.
Stewart is a retired veterinary surgeon and was a partner in a mixed, latterly small-animal, practice in Inverness for many years. Realising that he missed working with farm animals and having been seconded to the Foot and Mouth Disease outbreak of 2001, he left the partnership to work as a Veterinary Officer with the government agency Animal Health where he developed his interest in Animal Welfare becoming the Scottish lead for the agency in that discipline. He returned to the practice, by then in the ownership of a corporate group, for the last few years of his career ostensibly to wind down but instead finding himself in the role of Clinical Director!
Stewart’s initial retirement project, borne out of his long-term interest in the Highlands and Islands, was to complete a Master of Letters degree in Island Studies at the University of the Highlands and Islands. He has also recently completed training to become a Panel Member for Children’s Hearings Scotland. His hobbies include running and cycling.
Stewart is delighted to become a trustee of Canine Concern Scotland Trust where he hopes his veterinary experience together with a lifelong interest in and respect for dogs evolving from ownership of various breeds and crosses of all shapes and sizes might benefit the organisation. Pippin, the current family dog, is a Therapet.
