Weʼve raised £1,650 to fund a local veterinary practice helping animals in cases of severe financial hardship or animal welfare
- Funded on Friday, 23rd November 2018
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Roger is walking the Cotswold Way over 6 days during August starting in Bath and finishing in Chipping Campden. This is to raise funds for a charity very close to his heart called 'The Thomas Memorial Fund'. It was set up in memory of his wonderful Golden Retriever Thomas who sadly passed away in 2015. The fund is managed by Shipston Veterinary Centre and is used to help animals in cases of severe financial hardship of animal welfare. The fund has already come to the assistance of numerous animals and their owners and Roger has promised to arrange at least one event each year to raise much needed funds. Normally the events he organises involve eating and drinking but walking the Cotswold Way takes in other skills, none of which Roger has really used for many years! Thomas spent many happy days walking the last part of the Cotswold Way (Dover's Hill) so it is appropriate that Roger takes on the whole route finishing in Chipping Campden.

About the fundraiser
In a typical working week on the racecourse I walk about 40 miles so I thought I'd put all that effort to raise some money walking the Cotswold Way for the Thomas Memorial Fund.
