A big-hearted previous member of our team went extra mile to help change the lives of the animals here at our centre.
Rachel Mccombie took on the notorious Three Peaks Challenge to help the hundreds of dogs, cats and rabbits that the centre rescue each year.
Rachel tackled the climb with four of her friends – Bethany Smith, Georgia Smith, Lois Anyan and Chelsea Ainsley.
They began the challenge with Ben Nevis, before moving on to Scafell Pike and finally finishing with Snowdon – a total distance of 660 miles in just 24hrs; battling torrential rain, scorching heat and icy wind all in an attempt to raise funds for the centre.
Rachel said: “The Three Peaks Challenge is something that I have always wanted to do and having the opportunity to do it and raise money to benefit animals at the same time made it all the more worthwhile.
“We were absolutely thrilled to reach our goal of 24 hours, and we are so grateful to those who got behind us and donated what they could to a very worthy cause.”
The initial target was set to £500, however due to the amazing support and generosity of the public the final figure is an impressive £605.
Thank you so much for SteppingUp and SteppingOut and to everyone that supported Rachel and her friends. The money raised will buy new toys and equipment for the animals and help towards the cost of veterinary treatment here at the centre.
