Dogs Trust and Oldies Club supporter Trish Adams wanted a challenge to help her raise money for both charities. As a dog lover and owner she certainly spent a lot of time going 'walkies' so in May this year she started her trek from John O'Groats to Land's End.
Now three months into the 'trudge', the idea for which she wrote about on her website, she'll be dropping in at a couple of Dogs Trust Rehoming Centres along the way and we're very happy to help her publicise her remarkable efforts.
Although her lovely 14 year old dog Ben can't quite manage the 10 miles a day trek, when kind friends have brought him along for a section of the walk he has taken part! Friends have also joined the route for stretches at a time with their dogs and I bet she has a few recommendations for lovely dog walks now!
But enough from us: you can read Trish's own words and sponsor her on her travel blog.
Thanks for your support, Trish - we hope we can offer some in return and wish you well!
