Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Along with my friend and colleague, Linzi, I have set myself the challenge of '2017km in 2017'. As someone who usually does an average amount of exercise, this will be a huge challenge. Even if I travel some distance every day throughout the year that will be over 5.5km per day!

The charity I have chosen to support is 'Give a dog a bone... and an animal a home'.  It is a fairly new charity but growing fast due to the excellent work they are doing.  They support the over 60s to afford a rescue pet companion. If money is a genuine barrier, they can pay the rehoming fee for a rescue animal and continue to support, each month, with the cost of pet food.  Read more about their work here...http://www.giveadogabone.net

Thank you for taking the time to read my story and to support my challenge. Even if it's only a few pounds or a share on social media, I really appreciate your support...every penny counts!

I have also set up a text service to make donating even easier! Just text MYTR77 to 70070 to donate £2.
