Nationwide specialist lender to the veterinary market Braemar Finance has signed up a team of four to undertake the 2014 Vet Charity Challenge.
The team will be competing to raise vital funds for animal charities Hearing Dogs for the Deaf, Cats Protection and the Society for the Protection of Animals Abroad.
Taking place at St Francis School, Pewsey, Wiltshire on September 27, the challenge involves walking, running, off-road biking and kayaking, along with mental and physical team challenges and orienteering.
The team will be made up of local area manager Steve Forsyth as team captain, office supervisor Andrea Hill, accountant Marion Guthrie, and Colin Cornish.
Mr Forsyth commented: “We are all really excited to be taking part in the Vet Charity Challenge. “We see this as a great way to get fitter and we will be training throughout the summer, albeit separately due to our locations, to make sure we are up for the challenge.”
The 2013 event raised more than £50,000, and the team is encouraging donations as it looks to improve in 2014.
