ABC, the Shropshire-based agriculture, animal health, food chain
and land industries public relations agency, has teamed up with
Schering-Plough Animal Health to take part in the Coniston Challenge
charity event in September to raise money for Guide Dogs.
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
"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.
