Our President

The Duchess of Cornwall became the inaugural President of the Brooke in 2006. Her Royal Highness has visited the Brooke’s work in Cairo and Pakistan, the latter as part of a wider Royal visit in 2006 in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake which hit the country.

HRH The Duchess of Cornwall

As President Her Royal Highness was a guest at the Brooke’s first art and photographic exhibition ‘Working Animals Worldwide’ and more recently The Duchess hosted the Brooke’s 75th Anniversary Supporter Conference at St James’s Palace and a pioneering 'expert meeting' for international non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to discuss how to ‘Alleviate Poverty through working equine welfare’.

Her message:

"Having seen for myself the wonderful work the Brooke does in their clinic in Cairo, and in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake in Pakistan to help the suffering of working animals, it makes me incredibly proud to be the President of this unique charity and to follow its course with enormous interest.

Over the next few years the Brooke will be expanding into new countries, to bring it closer to achieving its goal of improving the welfare of two million animals each year.

This is a hugely important step and I wish the Brooke and its teams of dedicated staff, working in the field, every possible success with this objective."
