Story

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page.  

On 17 November 2018 I'm jetting off to Vietnam where I will embark on a journey of over 400km to Cambodia… on my bike! 

Starting at Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, I will cycle various distances daily for eight days until I reach my destination of Angkor Wat in Cambodia.  This will be a REAL challenge for me on two levels: firstly, I am by no means a ‘cyclist’ and am certainly not an experienced bike rider.  I will really need to train hard to increase my fitness level and my cycling confidence to ensure I can complete this vigorous challenge.  Secondly, I need to raise a minimum of £3,100 – more money than I have ever pledged to raise for any charity to date!

I have chosen to cycle for a very worthy cause close to my heart – Love Underdogs.  Love Underdogs are a charity that rescue Romanian dogs and rehome them in the UK. Three of my own six dogs came from this charity and I have also done voluntary work for them at their shelter in Brasov, Romania.

Romania is a country that does not treat its animals kindly and dogs, in particular, are treated appallingly.  Love Underdogs work with shelters in Romania to increase the basic standard of care stray and homeless dogs receive in shelters.  They then transport adoptable dogs to the UK to be rehomed by our animal-loving nation!  Having three dogs of my own come from Romania and watching them transform from terrified, nervous, abused animals into the happy, healthy, confident dogs they are today has been a rewarding and worthwhile experience and I want to give something back to Love Underdogs to support them in helping these dogs get a second chance at life.  

I would be ridiculously grateful for any donations, however big or small, in helping me raise my target in funds.  Your kind support is a huge motivation for me in achieving my targets for both training and fundraising!  Myself, Love Underdogs and of course every single dog that goes on to live a happy loving life because of their work, are all very grateful to you for your help.
