Leanne Benjamin

Leanne Benjamin runs a respite care programme for children with disabilities and health conditions. Animals Inspiring Kids is a holiday programme designed to build confidence, an interest in animals and extend social skills.

Leanne received $4,349.99 to purchase resources, toys and activities to improve the experience she offers the children while they are in her care.

Leanne hopes to provide pet therapy sessions to schools and hospitals on a regular basis and take animals on visits to children’s birthday parties in the future.
