A daring duo is swapping scrubs for superhero outfits to prepare for a charity fund-raising fun run dressed as Superman and Batman.

Veterinary receptionist Louise Peatson and her vet surgeon partner John Dennis will take part in a 10km Super Hero Fun Run in Regent’s Park, London, on 15 May.

By day…

Ms Peatson works at Arrowfield Veterinary Practice in Herefordshire, while Mr Dennis – former owner of Arrowfield Veterinary Group – is a vet with Petmedic.

They will be running to raise funds for Four Paws, a charity that helps animals in distress worldwide.

Ms Peatson said: “I got to know about Four Paws when I signed a petition to help end canned [trophy] hunting that tragically killed Cecil the lion last year. Naively, I had no idea this terrible thing went on.

A brighter future

“Raising money for Four Paws will help animals in need, to improve their lives and to give them a much brighter future.

“Four Paws are working hard to achieve this and the money raised will help to continue their work, which is fantastic.

“My love for animals runs very deep and has done since I was a child. It saddens me to know people can inflict such terrible suffering to animals, be it through ignorance or deliberate cruelty and I will continue to help animals as much as I can, whether its here at home or around the world.”
