The trio are among 303 animal lovers who are already one week into the long distance challenge 50 Miles for Animals. The challenge gives participants of all ages and fitness levels the freedom to take on the adventure of reaching a distance of 50 miles through the month of August, in any way they feel like.

In just one week since the challenge was launched, 365 animal lovers, including RSPCA inspectors and staff, have raised more than £10,000 of its £15k target.
