Animal Loneliness Champion
WINNER - CUDDLY CAVIES - DIANA TAYLOR
Diana started Cuddly Cavies two years ago when she had to give up work to look after her son who has autism.
Cuddly Cavies provides a pet based therapeutic animal activity for the elderly, disabled or young children.
Diana takes her guinea pigs into care homes across Norfolk to provide the therapy and she believes guinea pigs can help 'revitalise the lives of many elderly people, whether they are disabled, reside in assisted living complexes, are partially sighted or blind, or live with a mental health condition.'

Laurence Fox has defended his controversial comments surrounding the inclusion of a Sikh soldier in the Sam Mendes directed film, 1917.
The actor had said the inclusion of the character was 'incongruous' in an interview with James Delingpole, despite the fact millions of Sikh troops fought side by side with British soldiers.
When asked by Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid about his comments, Fox replied: "I’m not a historian I don’t know."
“I think there were a lot of soldiers from the former empire fighting in World War One. I suppose it would have been less incongruous to me if he had got on the truck to a whole regiment of Sikh soldiers.”
Piers later asked if he had any regrets over the "unfortunate" comments which sparked a huge backlash.
"Do you regret saying that?" Piers asked, adding: "Because out of all of the things you've said in the last two weeks - I've been cheering you on right until that point - but I was like that to me, I didn't really get what you were getting at.
"I felt like it was sort of insulting, actually, to Sikh soldiers who had served. Many, many hundreds of thousands of Indian soldiers who served in World War One. It felt to me as though it was an unfortunate thing to have said."

What I want to make clear is, we’re not walking away.
