The Digglers

reg. Charity No: 1143055


Hello and a warm welcome to the Digglers website. The original website was initiated in 2007. The site being dedicated to the memory of my special friends past and present. From cats to horses from sheep to hens all with their own unique story to tell. Within the website, I share the joy and happiness I have had keeping all my wonderful animal friends.

However, in May 2010 saw the birth of The Digglers Charitable Trust see the constitution. Exciting events took place that are chronicled within the site. The Digglers was to diversify into conservation, a wetlands habitat to be developed along with a woodland. It also means that the Digglers will continue well into the future in the capable hands of the trustees.

I hope you enjoy reading about The Digglers as much as I have enjoyed looking after them and keep abreast of the new initiatives that are taking place.

Disclaimer: Student bursaries operated under our former charity, Veterinary Vouchers Charitable Trust Fund. We also had a limited company Veterinary Vouchers Ltd, trading in vouchers and stamps. This closed in 2003, the Charity folded in 2010 as there was no connection to vouchers and stamps. The student bursaries are now part of the constitution of The Digglers and we do not operate a trading company dealing in vouchers and stamps.

The Digglers

It is with deep sadness I have been informed of the death of Mary, Lady Herries of Terregles, our patron on 7th April 2017. Over the years through our charity Mary has helped many secondary degree veterinary students achieve their MRCVS status and would not be practicing vets if not for her help. I have corresponded with Mary for several years and shall miss her terribly not only as our patron but as a loving, caring person with a sense of humour. A true Lady. It has been a privilege to have known Mary and she has enriched my life.
Kathleen Pearson, Chairwoman
