Christmas wishes for the RCVS Trust

30 November 2009

What do you get the vet who has everything? Why not make a book donation on their behalf to the RCVS Trust Library? The Library is used by hundreds of vets and VNs studying and working in many different veterinary fields – and to keep it well stocked needs your help.

To make it as easy as falling off a (yule) log, the Trust has set up an Amazon wish-list. You simply log onto, enter ‘RCVS Trust’ in the ‘Find-A-Wishlist’ search box, and choose your gift.

Titles currently on the wish list start at £14.00, and the Trust will receive the book directly from Amazon – so there’s no tricky wrapping or battling your way through the Christmas crowds required.

Unlike some of the big charities however, the Trust does not produce a glossy card for you to post to the gift recipient.

So, to let know them know what you’ve arranged, why not use one of the free RCVS Trust eCards available at It costs you nothing and means an extra donation will be made to the Trust.

You can also arrange to have the name of the person on whose behalf you are donating the book put on the book-plate inside the front cover. Contact the Trust’s librarian, Clare Boulton ( or 020 7202 0710), for details.

The RCVS Trust would like to thank all those whose support means that, since 2005, it has been able to invest over £2.5 million in veterinary education and research, and projects to improve animal welfare, and to wish them a very happy Christmas.
