The BCVA (British Cattle Veterinary Association) are celebrating their 50th anniversary by attempting to raise £50,000 for British based charity, Send A Cow.

The team including members from both the Nottingham Vet School and McMurtry and Harding Vets are nearing the end of their relay across England covering almost 200 miles over 2 days.

The first leg took the team from the Wash to Uttoxeter, a distance of 106 miles, lead by Reuben Newsome of Notts Vet School. Starting alone, Reuben will be joined by support after 70 miles.

Uttoxeter to Anchor on the border of Wales was the route for the next 87 miles, lead by McMurtry and Harding Vets.

The baton, a Lions rugby shirt has now been passed to Christianne Glossop, Chief Veterinary Officer for Wales, who is walking with it to the coast. Please help us contribute to this great cause, helping communities through introducing and developing agriculture.

Afterwards, the baton will be passed on to cyclists riding from Lands End to John O’Groats.

Send a Cow is a International Development charity with a difference. Working in a number of countries including Kenya, they’ve helped 1.3 million people work their way out of extreme poverty by providing livestock, tools, seeds and training, giving people the hope and means to establish a future for themselves, their families and their wider communities.
