Co-operatives UK have been a massive support in our process of converting to a Worker Co-operative.
Lord Whisky Sanctuary Fund
The charity was named after a little Jack Russell who lived with Margaret and her family and was put to sleep at the grand old age of 22 years. Lord Whisky was a bit of a character and needed careful understanding and this led us to realise that a sanctuary was needed that could provide the time and expertise to cope with animals like Lord Whisky and hopefully turn them around for re-homing.
