I am currently training for the London Marathon. You may have seen me ruddy faced and in need of CPR from various runs around Audlem over the recent weeks.
I am running in aid of the Scottish SPCA (Scotland's animal welfare charity) who do vital work in ensuring the welfare of Scotland's neglected and abandoned animals.
For those of you who know me, you will recognise that the charity's values of preventing cruelty to animals and promoting humanity and kindness in their treatment are central to every aspect of my life.
This includes the four cats who allow me to share their home with them and in my work as a psychologist interested in companion animal research and latterly as a trainee student of veterinary physiotherapy.
The Scottish SPCA do not receive lottery or government funding and rely on public donations to carry on their work.
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Click on the link below the photo.
Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails.
Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate — I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
Any amount that you are able to donate will be most gratefully received and will go to benefit a truly deserving cause. Thank you.
