The fantastic fundraisers at James Wellbeloved have done it again, by completing a grueling bike ride from London to Brighton to raise money for training a Dogs for the Disabled puppy. The 54-mile James Wellbeloved Big Bike Ride took place in September. Caroline Gray was one of the Wellbeloved team who took on the challenge. She said: “The ride was really good fun. I was expecting it to be hard work and it was! But, with 2,000 cyclists taking part, a beautiful clear day and a great sense of teamwork, the ride flew by and we all finished feeling elated and proud of what we’d achieved.”
You may remember that some of the team at James Wellbeloved took part in a sponsored climb of Mount Snowdon last year. This paid for the delightful Ava to take her first steps as a Dogs for the Disabled puppy. Trained assistance dogs offer freedom and independence to children and adults with disabilities and children with autism. From practical tasks like pulling on socks, to emotional and physical benefits, these dogs are incredibly special.
