LAA says Goodbye to a Dear Friend

With great sadness, LAA has recently said goodbye to Trustee and dear friend Vanessa 'Gay' Martin who died after a short illness in October.

Gay was a valued and valuable member of our LAA family, having helped with everything from selling Christmas cards to sorting charity shop donations in her time with us. Gay became a Trustee on the 16th of March 2003 and served on the Board of Trustees up until becoming unwell. Her all-round contribution to the Charity is outstanding.  

Anne Martin, Chair of LAA says,

Gay was a deeply respected member of our LAA family. She had a passion for animals and was devoted to the Charity and its cause. Gay was generous, energetic and always willing to help in any way she could. We will miss her energy, her good humour and her special sparkle.

The staff of LAA would like to extend their heartfelt condolences to Peter, Gay’s husband and their family.

Gay will be very much missed. We consider ourselves lucky to have had such a loyal supporter and to have known this extra-special lady.
