Join SPVS President Peter Brown as he scales the highest peaks in the UK to raise money for Vetlife and Vet Support NI
Peter explains “I wanted to do something to mark my presidential year. SPVS has a new Executive Director and a new Board and it is important to me that they communicate effectively with our members.” Thus the idea of symbolically reaching out around the UK whilst simultaneously raising money for charity was born. Peter enjoys walking , so a friend suggested ascending the highest points of each of the UK’s four countries. However, as he pointed out, they’re concentrated towards the north of the UK. “So we decided to include the highest points in the Midlands, the South-East and the South-West as well, effectively covering each of the UK’s main regions.”
Peter’s aim is to visit each of the peaks between Spring and Autumn of 2018 and he will be raising money for Vetlife and Vet Support NI, but he would love other vets and practices to be involved too. He hopes that as well as raising funds for a very worthwhile cause, the event will provide an opportunity to meet up with members up and down the country. “I’m very happy just to have a sociable chat over a drink,” he joked, “but it’s also a chance for us to say, here, this is what the Board is doing on your behalf and ask what members need from their Society.”
