This year SB Cake off is supporting both Vets in the Community and the Terrence Higgins Trust!
The Terrence Higgins Trust is a UK based charity working to provide information, testing and support for those affected by HIV. They are a brilliant charity that aims to end transmission of HIV as well as empowering those currently living with HIV.
They operate through thousands of centres spread across the UK, and help with long term health management of HIV. Other services include improving sexual health amongst communities susceptible to HIV and other STI's. Many centres also offer multiple STI tests for free.
Vets in the Community is a student run enterprise that aims to provide free routine veterinary care for the pets of homeless and vulnerably housed people in Nottingham. We run clinics twice a month in central Nottingham and have run over 700 consults!
A cascade grant (provided by the University of Nottinghams Vet School, Alumni and friends) set up this scheme in 2012.
Vet students get to practice consulting (under a qualified vets supervision) and homeless or vulnerably housed people get to keep their pets healthy - it's a win-win!
We can provide:
- ear/eye treatments
- pain relief
- worming and flea treatment
- advice on many aspects of the animals health
- information about other resources available
As running this clinic is very expensive we need to keep fundraising to keep going, so please give whatever you can!
Donating isn't the only way to help us, sharing the page on social media can help us reach a much larger audience and raise awareness of the work we do.
SB Cake off has very kindly decided to support us again this year, and all donations will go to a very good cause.
This page is a quick, easy way to donate.
We believe that Every Pet Deserves a Vet!
