The nation’s leading animal welfare organisation, RSPCA Australia, today welcomes Eileen Thumpkin as its new President, taking the reins from outgoing President Lynne Bradshaw.
Bringing with her six years of experience as the RSPCA Queensland President, Ms Thumpkin will continue to lead the organisation in its work improving the welfare of animals. Ms Thumpkin’s extensive experience in senior roles in the education, arts and animal welfare arenas will stand her in good stead in her new voluntary position.
Ms Thumpkin paid tribute to outgoing President Lynne Bradshaw, who led the organisation since 2006.
“Mrs Bradshaw has been a passionate advocate for animal welfare and has contributed to momentous changes that have cemented animal welfare as a mainstream community issue. The lives of millions of animals have improved over recent years as a result of these changes. Mrs Bradshaw also led a review of the organisation’s governance and has put in place best practice standards that will ensure RSPCA Australia has a strong future,” Ms Thumpkin said.
“I thank Mrs Bradshaw for her dedicated service to RSPCA Australia and to Australian animals.
“The RSPCA is one of Australia’s most trusted and respected charities and I’m honoured to lead RSPCA Australia as we continue our work to improve the lives of animals,” said Ms Thumpkin.
