Anne Hemmings

Anne, seen here in white top, has been actively involved in animal welfare for over 20 years, and supports many South African and overseas animal charities. She tries to publicise their work wherever possible, so that the public can support their efforts to make this world a better place for all of us. Anne and her husband are actively involved in the daily feeding and monitoring of feral cats in parts of her home city.
