SCA Rural Hero is for 2013 is.......

If you chose to google hero you will read a variety of definitions but in essence a hero (masculine) or (feminine) refers to characters who, in the face of danger and adversity or from a position of weakness, display courage and the will for self-sacrifice—that is, heroism—

Carol Begg Perthshire Gundog Resuce

Carol Begg can most certainly be described as such a character. She is committed to the welfare of all dogs that come into her care, and endeavours to make a positive contribution to their lives, no matter what their circumstances. She also pride ourselves in getting people actively involved in gundog training which helps hugely in stimulating working dogs, making a happier life for the dogs and their owners.

And as trues heroes do she decries her own commitment whilst highly praising those who volunteer their time.

Ladies and gentlemen our rural hero for 2013 is Carol Begg, Perthshire gundog rescue
