11-11-17 - MIKE POLLARD
In July.. I took on the challenge of an Ultra Race around the North Wales Coastal Path. I managed to complete 72 miles in just under 24 hours. However I unfortunately struggled with severe blisters due to the difficult conditions but the potential sponsorship inspired me to keep going for such a worthy cause. Having adopted a Beagle from MTAR in 2015 I was never going to give up and I was able to raise £1400 in the process. Beattie (was Raven) the Beagle is now loving life running free in the Forests and on the beaches of Snowdonia. I recently visited the rescue and was able to see the excellent work being done by Sylvia and her great Team. Thank you again for rescuing Beattie and allowing us to bring much needed love and happiness to her life. 2 years ago when we rescued her she wouldn't even look me in the eye but today she jumps up on the sofa next to me and loves nothing more than a cuddle and a belly rub!!
