Equine vets at Abbey Equine Clinic, based in Abergavenny, South Wales have challenged their small animal veterinary colleagues to a 2 day sponsored tetrathlon (9-10 August).

Two teams of 8 veterinary staff and a team of 4 veterinary sales representatives will compete against each other in a 10k bike ride, a 400m swim, a 5k run and then a Prelim dressage test.

The inter-practice contest was thought up by Bryony Lovell-Williams, office manager at Abbey Equine Clinic, in order to raise funds for the children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent.

Bryony explained: “Having had personal contact with the charity, CLIC Sargent is very close to my heart. They give families invaluable support throughout child illnesses, which helps them through a very difficult times.

“Now we are doing as much as we can to help them in return. We have raised nearly £500 through sponsorship and prizes so far but hope to raise more than that.”

To sponsor them either call 01873 840069 or pick up a sponsorship form from an Abbey Vets Branch.
