A Sudbury-based vets is holding a charity gala in aid of an animal dentist who is on a mission to help endangered animals after being diagnosed with motor neurone disease.
Specialist animal dental surgeon Lisa Milella has drawn up a bucket list of ways to help endangered animals all over the globe after the incurable disease prevented her ability to operate.
Gerhard Putter, veterinary surgeon at Mulberry Court’s All Animal Dental Centre, worked with Lisa in Indonesia, treating slow lorises and orangutans.
As part of her mission to raise £10,000 for International Animal Rescue, Mulberry Court staff are organising a charity gala on March 14.
They are asking people to support the event by donating money, raffle prizes or gifts to be auctioned.
Mr Putter said Lisa was on a mission to help the world’s most endangered animals with her remaining time.
“Faced with the devastating news when she was diagnosed with motor neurone disease, her condition is deteriorating and she is no longer able to operate, no longer able to assist in a practical way, but determined to devote her time to encourage others to support the charity and leave behind a lasting legacy,” he said.
The event at Stoke-by-Nayland Hotel, Golf and Spa is scheduled to kick off at 7.30pm.
It promises to be an entertaining evening with an all-night disco, singers, magician, auction and buffet.
Anyone wanting to donate auction prizes or purchase tickets should contact Mulberry Court via firstname.lastname@example.org.
