Jane Hirons & Helen Barlow – Kenilworth Supporter Relations Officers
Helen Barlow and Jane Hirons cover Kenilworth and the surrounding areas
Hello. We are Jane Hirons and Helen Barlow and we are the Supporter Relations Officers at Dogs Trust Kenilworth. Jane has worked for Dogs Trust since 1993 and became an SRO in 2002. Helen has worked for Dogs Trust since 2004 and joined Jane in 2008 as one of the SROs at Kenilworth. The role is very varied and no two days are the same.
We offer free talks to community groups and also organise tours of the rehoming centre, as well as dealing with any local enquiries about donations in memory of a loved one. We can also talk to you about the free Canine Care Card Scheme and answer any legacy enquiries.
The annual Fun Day is also our responsibility, as are some of the other Kenilworth Dogs Trust fundraising events.
Between them we have five dogs, including two Pug Crosses and a Dogue de Bordeaux! The things we love most about the job are meeting people, going out and doing events and talks; as well as having lots of cuddles with the dogs of course.
We also have similar hobbies, including spending time with our families - usually outside getting muddy! Finally, a little-known fact about Jane is that she once appeared as Prince Charming in a pantomime in aid of Dogs Trust (photos withheld!) and Helen has run the London Marathon, also in aid of Dogs Trust!
If you would like any information about booking a talk or tour for your community group or are enquiring about the Canine Care Card Scheme or legacies, then please don’t hesitate to call us on 01926 486010 or email us at [email protected] or [email protected]
