1st update

Further to the bulletin below about one of our patrons, Dorin Boyce, we are very pleased to be able to update you on her improving condition.

We are happy to report that Dorin is slowly on the mend. She has responded to our Facebook message thanking us  and saying that Greyhounds are still her favourite!  

She is still receiving treatment for her injuries in hospital but continues to improve. One of her many friends reports that she is “still feisty” which is always a good sign.

Get well soon, Dorin.



Many of you will know or have heard of Dorin Boyce who is one of our two Fen Bank Patrons. 

Dorin is 86 and owns and runs the Woodbourne Boarding and Rescue Kennels in St Philip, Barbados, in the Caribbean. 

Late on the evening of Wednesday 6th September she was alone at home when she was attacked, severely beaten and robbed by intruders and as a result she suffered very serious injuries. She is currently in the nearby Queen Elizabeth hospital receiving treatment. Her condition appears to be improving slowly and she is now able to talk a little.

Dorin has spent a lifetime looking after dogs, feeding or taking in strays and donating money widely to support animal welfare charities, including Fen Bank.

All of us at Fen bank send our best wishes to Dorin for a speedy recovery.

We will update this page as we get any further information.
