Cornish vet Amy Jones has completed an epic 12 hour fundraising mountain bike ride for UK based African charity Send A Cow, which supports farmers in Kenya.

The  veterinarian, who works for Kernow Farm and Equine in Cornwall managed to complete the Pivot Twentyfour12 course an incredible fifteen laps at Newnham Park, riding 96 miles over 12 hours making her the fastest senior female soloist.

Bristol graduate Amy had set herself a modest £250 fundraising target, but she is getting close to doubling that with her current total at the time of writing being £420. 

Speaking after the event, Amy said: “I swore last year that I’d never race the Pivot Twentyfour12 again, but raising money for Send a Cow was my inspiration to try again.”

The charity she is supporting, Send a Cow, has been working with some of Africa’s poorest families for 30 years this year, helping over 2 million people work their way out of extreme poverty. They provide livestock, tools, seeds and training as part of a programme giving people the hope and means to establish a future for themselves and their families.
