£900 raised for StreetVet by Animalcare/Identicare Yorkshire Marathon Relay Team

Animalcare UK/Identicare’s Yorkshire Marathon Relay team, “Team Pain” has raised almost £900 for StreetVet so far

A team from Animalcare UK/Identicare, nicknamed “Team Pain”, has raised almost £900 for StreetVet by taking part in the Yorkshire Marathon Relay event. 

The race, on Sunday 17 October, involved teams of six tackling a range of distances on a course around the city.

Commenting, Luke Bishop, Identicare contact centre advisor, said: “What a great experience! The atmosphere on the day was brilliant. Throughout the whole route spectators lined the streets to cheer us on, which motivated us to keep going. We really bonded as a team and it was great that the whole team could be there to see our final team member, Mike Jamieson, storm across the finishing line.

“Sadly, one of our team members was struck down with tonsilitis on the day but our Senior Veterinary Manager, Felicity Caddick, a marathon runner and triathlete, nobly agreed to cover two legs to get us through. We were delighted to finish in a time of four hours and 25 minutes and to have raised almost £900 for StreetVet. The charity is close to our hearts and is charity of the year for both Animalcare and Identicare.”

The money raised from this event, coupled with the donations from Felicity’s Caddick’s Outlaw challenge in August means that Animalcare has raised more than £1,400 for Street Vet this year.

Donations can still be made, here.
