Maria Walden – Fundraising/Ebay Manager
Maria lives down in Southampton and the rescue first heard of her sterling efforts a couple of years ago when she use to run regular auctions amongst other things to fundraise for a variety of organisations. The rescue was then lucky to be invited to be one of the chosen organisations to have funds raised. An amazing amount was raised and a solid friendship formed . The rescue was then offered an amazing offer of where this wonderful lady selflessly donates her time amongst a whole host of other things to raise funds for LLR and so the title was borne. Maria is a force to be reckoned with when raising money and the rescue would not have completed major projects without her tireless help.
Mustafa Ozmus – IMDT Dog Trainer
Mus has been a qualified IMDT trainer for just over 4 years and has a Rottie and a Beagle cross. Mus is kept very busy with his IMDT work involving various courses and one to one work. The rescue is very lucky to have him live very close to the centre and therefore he was exposed from the offset to a variety of sighthounds, lurchers , longdogs and podencos and could not help but get involved when asked !!! Mus helps out when required for any additional specific training programmes and is the stooge male for most of the assessments.
Pam Lander – McTimoney Chiropractor/Instructor
Pam discovered McTimoney Chiropractic after suffering with a shoulder problem in 2001 and was treated and restored to health by a McTimoney chiropractor.

Pam graduated with a First Class Masters Degree and is also qualified in massage therapy, Reiki and Indian head massage. Since graduating, Pam has joined the McTimoney College as a Technique Instructor and, supervises final year graduates in their clinic year.
