Award Win for Horse Charity Manager

A few weeks ago we were informed of a award nomination for Terena, the Centre manager here at the Northcote Heavy Horse Centre. We were all delighted just for the nomination but the a few days ago we received a message congratulating Terena on winning an 'Everyday Hero' award. 

The award comes from Pork Farms and they travelled a great distance in a vintage VW Camper to arrange a surprise 'popup party' for Terena and around 30 guests. We all had a lovely evening with some great food, music and company! We would like to thank Pork Farms for their kind generosity. It means so much to all of us and certainly Terena!

Terena runs the Northcote Heavy Horse Centre unpaid with so much love, dedication and devotion. There are many days when voluntary help is low and Terena often has to manage the entire centre on her own! So please take a moment to congratulate and thank Terena on an award that is so deserved.

Award Nomination for Charity Manager

Northcote Heavy Horse Centre manager, Terena has been awarded a fantastic and well deserved win for her selfless work here at the Centre! 

Like all volunteers here at the charity, Terena is unpaid but is here 24/7. Many days when voluntary help is low she does all of the jobs on her own - often without recognition.  

We're so thrilled for this well deserved win!

Pork Farms head of markets Kim Burgess, said: “Terena is an inspiration to all of us and we encourage her friends, family and local community to get behind her and leave a comment on the Pork Farms Facebook page.”

Terena was nominated by another dedicated volunteer Fran, Francesca said: “Terena works 24/7 for no pay, and often no thanks. A party for her, instead of her planning parties and events for everyone else to raise funds, would be amazing. She is such a dedicated and selfless person who always puts others first.”
