The prize, provided by former Vetlife director Nicky Paull, is a week for two in a luxury Cornwall cottage and will be offered again at the VDS reunions this year.

Sophie said: “I am a 2014 Liverpool graduate from Herefordshire.  The weekend was very useful and a great opportunity to catch up with friends and revive crazy dance moves.

“I work at Head and Head Vets in Helston and enjoy all aspects of mixed practice, especially equine and sheep work.

“It has been a big move down to Cornwall. The busy life of a new vet, coupled with many weekends racing up the M5 to help on the family farm, has meant I am yet to really get the chance to enjoy and explore what the county of pasties and Poldark has to offer. I am excited to now have the chance to explore new parts of this wonderful county.”
