The National Canine Defence League, the dog charity best known for
the ubiquitous slogan ’A dog is for life not just for Christmas’, is to
lose its communications director, Siobhan Lavelle in May. Lavelle is
leaving to join healthcare consultancy Chandler Chicco as a consultant.
NCDL chief executive Clarissa Baldwin, to whom the role reports, is
already looking for a new director to head the 20-strong communications
department, which covers media relations, events management, youth
education and campaigns.
