A LAIRG woman is to take on the Land’s End to John O’Groats Challenge in aid of the Scottish SPCA.
Beth Osborne will set out on her 13-day challenge on May 20 which will see her pass through some of the most stunning and remote scenery in Scotland while supporting Scotland’s unwanted, abandoned and neglected animals.
Choosing a charity to support was an easy decision for Beth as she’s always been an animal lover.
Beth said: "I’ve always been a keen cyclist and have toyed with the idea of taking part in this challenge for a few years. I’ve recently started to improve my fitness so I used this as a way to stay motivated!
"I am proud to be taking part in the challenge to support the oldest and largest welfare charity in Scotland that helps save abused, abandoned and injured animals. They were an obvious choice for me as I feel it is important to highlight the Scottish SPCA’s cause. Scotland’s animals need us!
"I would rehome all of the animals in the care of the Scottish SPCA if I could. I’ve worked in kennels in the past and have two dogs."
Elaine Floyd, manager of the SSPCA’s Inverness Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre, said: "This is an incredible challenge and we’re extremely grateful to Beth for choosing to support the Society as we rely solely on the generosity of the public to help us care for abused, abandoned and neglected animals each year.
"We wish Beth all the very best for the big day!"
