Spring 2018

A moooving donation

We’re extremely grateful to Sarah Baillie, who is one of our volunteers, and the University of Bristol for the £4,000 donation we received in January.

Sarah is a researcher and teacher in the field of veterinary medicine and has developed a number of fascinating inventions.

One of the simulators, the Haptic Cow, is generating income some of which has been donated to charities like us! This virtual-reality teaching simulator trains veterinary students to diagnose a cow’s pregnancy. Students interact with virtual touch systems inside a fibreglass model of the rear half of a cow and view the virtual reality simulation on a screen.

Thank you Sarah and The University of Bristol!
