Christine Townend retires

From ANIMAL PEOPLE, October 2007:
“I have retired as a trustee of Help In Suffering after 17
years of almost full-time voluntary work,” Christine Townend
e-mailed to ANIMAL PEOPLE on October 22, 2007. “Jack Reece,” the
Help In Suffering senior veterinarian, “will take over as a trustee
in my place.” Townend and Animal Liberation author Peter Singer
cofounded the Australian animal rights group Animal Liberation, now
Animals Australia, in 1978. Townend in 1992 succeeded founder
Crystal Rogers as head trustee of the original Help In Suffering
hospital and shelter in Jaipur, India, and later expanded the
organization to run a second hospital in Darjeeling, in the
Himalayan foothills. She received a lifetime achievement medal from
the Winsome Constance Kindness Trust in 2006.
