By useing examples of some remarkable creatures who, through extreme gallantry or devotion to duty, have been awarded the Dickin Medal - known as the Victoria Cross for animals. We are able to see what a huge contribution to human history, has been made by creatures of all kinds - from the largest to the smallest. This presentation includes video content and sound and is suitable for audiences of all age ranges


At the conclusion of the highly interactive and engaging presentation, SCLT veteran presenter Ash Jones commented, “It has been a real privilege to be invited to join the members of the Friendship Club and to be able to help make them a little safer and more secure, by sharing with them the history of the Dickin Medal”
