Agria Pet Insurance has presented cheques to two charities recently thanks to some pedal-powered fundraising.
Over 500 miles of the French countryside was covered in just three days.
Such a tough challenge attracted a whole host of sponsors; motivating the teams and resulting in a fantastic £2,343.75 being raised for these worthwhile causes.
Debbie Flint, ambassador of Medical Detection Dogs said: “We can’t thank the cycling teams at Agria enough for their support.
“Medical Detection Dogs is changing the lives of people with life-threatening conditions every day, but at a cost of £11,200 to train a medical alert assistance dog, and no government funding, we rely on donations to continue our ground-breaking work.”
Chief executive at Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home, Howard Bridges, said: “Our first experience of Crufts ended on a high as we received a wonderful donation from our friends at Agria Pet Insurance from their tough cycle challenge!
“Every penny will go towards helping dogs and cats receive the care they deserve and find a forever home, and we are extremely grateful.”
Agria’s cycling teams are currently in training for the first event of 2016, the Mont Ventoux challenge. For more information visit http://www.agriapet.co.uk/medianews/
