Mike's Dog & Bike Month

I am raising money for LLYS NINI ANIMAL CENTRE because Animals matter

raised by 20 supporters


The branch is an independently run charity based in South Wales. It is a self-financing organisation committed to providing animal welfare services in its area. The Branch is affiliated to the national RSPCA, but receives no automatic funding from it. This means that the £800,000 annual running costs of the Branch must be entirely met from fundraising activities.

Charity Registration No. 224337


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I have had 2 dogs from Llys Nini.

My latest moochy, Ozzie (Pic above) is my best pal and to think he was being mistreated makes me mad and sad, even now over 7 years after rehoming him as he is such a gentle soul.

The centre receives no central funding and solely relies on donations from the general public.

I just want to say a small thanks by doing my bit to raise some much needed funds to support the amazing work they do there.

On previous January challenges, I have cycled the 14 mile round trip from my house to Mumbles Pier and back.

This year, as I am raising money for Llys Nini, I thought I would involve Ozzie in the challenge.

So I am going to alternate between a 14 mile bike ride and a 4 mile dog walk throughout January. (Only snow/ice/illness/injury will extend this challenge into February)

On day 31, I will do both.

So the totals at the end of the month should be 224 miles on the bike and 64 miles walked.

I shall post regular proof of the challenge as I will track it all via GPS (Endomondo) and will also keep a blog chronicling my thoughts and deeds along the way.

Many thanks for your support.
