On the 26th July 2019 I will begin the 7 day trek to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, the worlds highest freestanding mountain.
For those who know me well will understand what an undertaking this is for me. After suffering with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome from the age of 21 I eventually regained my health 18 months ago at the age of 30.
Becoming a Registered Veterinary Nurse has been my greatest and proudest achievement to date. I truly love my job and the profession as a whole and volunteering for StreetVet has only enhanced this. Witnessing the bond between the homeless people of London and their animals has been a humbling and moving experience. Being a small part of this wonderful team of volunteer vets and nurses who bring comfort and peace of mind to those less fortunate is such a privilege.
I am self-funding this challenge so ALL money donated will go directly to StreetVet. Any amount of money donated is gratefully recieved and will be used well.

Homelessness is a growing problem in the UK and an increasing number of homeless people have dogs. The bond between many homeless people and their dogs is profound and the health and wellbeing of their canine companions is often a major priority for their owners.Life on the streets makes it difficult to access the fundamental vet care required to ensure the health and vitality these dogs deserve. StreetVet is a registered practice with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and has been established by a dedicated team of professional vets and veterinary nurses to bring that essential care to homeless people and their dogs across the capital. Together the StreetVet team take their experience out onto the streets of ever expanding locations, seeking out people; their dogs living rough, and delivering care and support required to ensure their combined wellbeing.Combined with the critical support of a host of renowned organisations backing our team of qualified professionals, StreetVet is changing the future for homeless dogs who may otherwise have to go without the care they need and deserve.
