The Burgess Wetnose Animal Rescue Awards took place on Friday 9th March, with the Hatch team descending upon Knightsbridge to organise the event and media on behalf of the headline sponsor.

The annual awards ceremony aims to reward and recognise the work of small, independent rescue centres that help to rehabilitate and re-house abandoned animals across the UK and overseas.

Various celebrities from the world of TV and film attended (some with their pets!) to show their support for such a valued charity. The Hatch team were left star struck after meeting Dame Judi Dench, who kindly presented an award!

Favourite amongst the Hatch girls was Boris the police horse, honoured with the โ€˜Hero Awardโ€™ for his efforts during the London riots of 2011. He posed for pictures and behaved perfectly during the pre-event press call before trotting back to his stables, unable to come inside the 5* Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel to collect his award!

The event was a great success with a range of national media covering the event including OK! magazine, London Tonight and The People.
