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.

StreetVet was born in 2016, inspired by the incredible bond between a
homeless man and his dog Lola. Victims of the UK homelessness epidemic
often have scant support, except for, in a growing number of cases, the
companionship of their pets. Some have had their pets since before losing their
homes. Others had the responsibility of pet ownership thrust upon them. The bond between many homeless people and their dogs is profound, such that their
pets’ wellbeing is a life-shaping priority. Now our volunteers can help provide accessible vet care.
StreetVets are out
in the London community 3 days a week. In the past year we have helped
care for over 70 street dogs.
Now we need your support to
help us care for more of the Lolas in this world. Donations made here will fund
an increase in our outreach from three to five teams so that we can have vets
on the streets at least five days a week in different parts of London.
