Vet puts in dogged climbing effort to help out local charity

Friday, June 29th, 2012

 

 

A plucky vet and her canine friend are to climb Ben Nevis to help the animals of Tameside and Glossop.

Rachel Bean and her trusty pal Wisp will be taking on the British Isles’ highest mountain on the 5th July to help raise valuable funds for the Tameside and Glossop branch of the RSPCA.

Although it’s not an enviable task, they are doing it because the charity organisation desperately needs donations to keep doing the priceless work they do with animals in need.

So whilst Rachel and Wisp get their hiking boots on, why not open your hearts and empty your wallets by donating and leaving Rachel a message of support on her fundraising page.

“It can be dangerous to cycle on footpaths and pavements, especially in an irresponsible manner where there is a safety risk for people walking along the pavement and also stepping out of their homes. The cyclists also put themselves at risk of being hurt by vehicles reversing out onto the road. It was fortunate that the man did not suffer many injuries.”
