Hop to our shops for re­lay great fun

Harefield Gazette - - ANIMAL NEWS -

AWALK on the wild side? It’s a fact of life that not all of us can run marathons; we’re not all made that way (for­tu­nately!). Some of us pre­fer a gen­tle bike ride, a leisurely walk and maybe, a lit­tle bit of shop­ping and that is some­thing we can help with.

On the April 23 we will be hold­ing our first ever Re­tail Re­lay: Ram­ble, Run or Ride. The idea is very sim­ple; all we want you to do is to walk, run or cy­cle around all of our seven shops in one day. If you are feel­ing fit you can take on the chal­lenge on your own or with a friend. If you are feel­ing a lit­tle less en­er­getic you can do it as a re­lay with each team mem­ber do­ing just one leg. You can even just do one leg if that is all you can man­age, it’s up to you.

If you want to cover all seven legs the to­tal dis­tance is just over 20 miles so it’s a full day’s com­mit­ment. The choice of route, where you start and where you fin­ish is to­tally up to you so if you know any short cuts through back al­leys or across fields that’s fine with us. We just need you to check in at each of our shops as you go and raise as much money as pos­si­ble.

There will be a non-re­fund­able reg­is­tra­tion fee of £10 per per­son which will cover our costs so ev­ery penny you raise will be spent on caring for our an­i­mals.

Reg­is­tra­tion de­tails will be on our web­site very soon and in­for­ma­tion packs / reg­is­tra­tion forms will be avail­able in the shops.

If you would like to take part please put the date in your di­ary (it hap­pens to be the same day as the Lon­don Marathon), get your team to­gether, start think­ing about your route and maybe, start training.

Our shops are in Ken­ton, Pin­ner, East­cote, Ruis­lip, Ruis­lip Manor, Rick­mansworth and Watford.

Sam Sam is tiny. He is a re­ally friendly lit­tle chap brought in by one of the RSPCA In­spec­tors. Sam had been aban­doned in a flat when the heart­less own­ers moved out, leav­ing him to fend for him­self – if he hadn’t been found he wouldn’t have sur­vived for very long. Hav­ing vis­ited our of­fice a few times, Sam proved him­self to by some­thing of an IT spe­cial­ist by sneak­ing be­hind our com­puter server dis­abling all ac­cess and dis­con­nect­ing the in­ter­net which is pretty im­pres­sive when you are only a few weeks old!

If you think you could of­fer a for­ever home to Sam or any of the cats and kit­tens we cur­rently have in our care then please call (020) 8966 9688 or email info@ rsp­camid­dle­sex.org.uk

You can see pic­tures of many of the other an­i­mals (bud­gies, rats, rab­bits, cats & kit­tens) in our care on our Face­book page – www. face­book.com/RSPCAMNW ad you can fol­low us on twitter too @RSP­CAMID­DLE­SEX And fi­nally.. If you were one of the gen­er­ous peo­ple who dropped some money in our buck­ets when we were col­lect­ing at Pets at Home in Watford, Ruis­lip and St Al­bans – Thank you – we re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate it.
