ABC's David Butler, Ashley Fawcett and Matt Mellor will make up a team with three from Schering-Plough. Together, they will paddle, scramble and peddle their way to oblivion!

The cause - Guide Dogs - is a very worthy one, and like all charities is forever needy.

"We would like to ask for your support, and have made it very easy for you by setting up an on-line facility that allows you to make a pledge without having to leave you seat," said David Butler.

"It also allows Guide Dogs to reclaim Gift Aid if you make a personal donation via the website. Alternatively, you can send a cheque (individual or corporate) made out to Guide Dogs for the attention of Helen Smith at ABC. Any support you can provide will be greatly appreciated."

The Coniston Adventure Team Challenge is a veterinary industry initiative and takes place on Saturday 2nd September.

Teams of six will paddle canoes on Coniston Water, scramble up and down the Old Man of Coniston, and mountain bike in Grizedale Forest. The whole challenge to take us somewhere in the region of 10 - 12 hours.
