|The Goddard Growlers are putting the final touches to their training ahead of the Vet Charity Challenge event which takes place at Pershore College in Worcestershire on 28 September. The team comprises Stone Lion Head Vet Roger Bralow; Practice Manager for North West London, Adrian Hayter; Philippa Davis, Regional Manager for NE London and Lisa Cooper, VN and Hospital Manager for Wanstead Hospital.|
Philippa Davis comments: “Our training regime is going well despite the injuries we’ve sustained making us consider that we might be ‘too old’ for this malarkey. I’ve certainly had to stop saying ‘I don’t do’ running as I’ve found that I’m enjoying it and will continue to do it after the challenge. We make a great team and while the events will be very tough, we’ll have some laughs along the way.
We certainly have a will to win and our fellow teams will find us highly competitive and growling at them at every opportunity! Seriously though, we’re all really looking forward to it and watching the long range weather forecast with unusual interest! We’re also delighted to be helping the fantastic causes which the Vet Charity Challenge is fundraising for this year. Our colleagues across the Goddard Group are giving us great support and we have already raised more than £600. Bring it on!”
