On the 15th December, Abigayle Wells, a veterinary assistant from the UK, is embarking on an awesome fundraising challenge to help animals in need!
As a veterinary care assistant, I see heartbreaking situations every day. However, here in England we have a lot more resources to help with the care and treatment of our pets. Other countries are struggling and I want to help make a difference to ensure all animals receive the best possible veterinary care regardless of where they are in the world.
I am taking part in a two hour walk carrying 10kg on my back. I’m currently training a few times a week to help me achieve this goal. As well as my fundraising challenge, I’m also preparing for the exciting task ahead when I travel to Thailand with WVS to take part in one of their courses.
The work that WVS does has touched my heart. It is amazing to see others like myself wanting to help so much and the training they provide for vets and nurses around the world is fantastic. It gives me great pleasure to be a part of it.
I also hope to raise awareness of what WVS do and what they stand for. I don’t think people realize the true pain and suffering animals around the world go through, so by doing this challenge I hope that people will come to understand why WVS does the important work they do.
My advice to anyone considering a fundraising challenge is simply to DO IT! What is there to lose! You would not only be making a difference to animals and people all around the world, but it would be an amazing experience for your own self-development! I would do this again in a heartbeat.
WVS is definitely a charity that I will be supporting for the rest of my life. They care so much, and I think people can learn a lot from what they do.
