Spencer Award for Therapet of the Year 


This award was donated by Tom and Dorothy Wilkins, whose Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, SPENCER, was the very first dog to be registered in the Therapet scheme, way back in 1988

Organiser of The Year

This award was donated in memory of a very special gentleman and his very special dog - Dr Morris Andrew and Daniel the Spaniel. It was made by members of his family who agreed that it should go to the THERAPET ORGANISER of the Year since Morris himself, as well as being a Trustee, represented Edinburgh for many years.

The Award is not voted on. The Administrator decides on the recipient. As he knows all about our Area Representatives - at least all about the work they do for the Trust - so who better to make the decision! It is not easy of course. We have so many wonderful people around Scotland who give of their valuable time and do magnificent work for the Trust.

Iain Whyte Memorial 

This award is made to a person or organisation whose work has been of special benefit to the Trust over the past year or a period of years and this was donated by Betty Lawson Whyte in memory of husband Iain Whyte.

KI-CHU-ASHA Stars of Hope Memorial Trophy
Miss Matty Award

This award is given to the top individual fund raiser of our sponsored walks held throughout the year and is in memory of Marjorie & Nick Henley Price's Boxer Matty


Long Service Awards

This is awarded to the sponsored walk organiser whose walk raised the most money and this was donated by Jean Llamo

The Trustees decided that it would be good to recognise those members of the Trust who have given continuous service to the Trust for 20 or more years.
