The Marchig Animal Welfare Trust was established in 1989 by the late
Madame Jeanne Marchig of Geneva, because of her deep concern for nature and
animals and in memory of her husband, the painter Giannino Marchig.
The objects of the Trust are to protect animals and to promote and encourage
practical work in preventing animal cruelty and the relief of animal suffering.
These objects are pursued by the Trust in two ways, Grants and Awards.
It is with deep sadness that Jurek Mlotkiewicz, a Trustee of the charity
passed away on the 25th July 2021, following a short illness.
He will be known to many in his role as the ‘face’ of the charity,
who dealt with the administration of all grant applications and enquiries.
Always polite, considerate, helpful and kind, Jurek was one of life’s very special people.
His many interests included playing the bagpipes in his local Pipe Band.
The Marchig Animal Welfare Trust is a UK registered charity, registration numbers: 802133 [England and Wales] SCO38057 [Scotland]
