Companion Care Vets raise £40,000 by cycling the length of UK

A team of adventurous vets, nurses and support staff from Companion Care Vets have raised a staggering £40,000 for Dogs for the Disabled after cycling a gruelling 958 miles from Lands End to John O’Groats.

The team set off from Lands End on 1 May winding their way through beautiful Cornish roads. Twelve days and over 900 miles later they passed through the high sand-dunes of Dunnet Bay, which signified the end of an epic journey which saw the team cycle between 60 and 100 miles a day!

The team would like to thank each and every person who has so generously sponsored them and supported them along the way.

Peter Gorbing, Dogs for the Disabled Chief Executive commented, “We are extremely grateful for the fundraising efforts of all the Companion Care staff involved. It costs over £19,000 to train, create and support a Dogs for the Disabled partnership throughout its lifetime. The funds raised will truly transform the life of someone living with disability, providing them with confidence and independence that will open doors to fresh opportunities.”
