ANIMAL lovers in Angus are being invited to experience the trip of a lifetime while raising vital funds for the Scottish SPCA.

Exciting challenges currently being arranged by the charity include climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa’s highest mountain and trekking the Inca Trail to the historic settlement of Machu Picchu in Peru.

Sharon Comrie, manager of the Scottish SPCA’s Angus, Fife and Tayside Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre, said, “This really is a fantastic way for people to get involved and help animals in their local community.

“There are over 30 amazing adventures to choose from and they cater for all abilities, from reasonably moderate challenges to extreme adventures.”

There is also a variety of other events which will take place in some of the most beautiful and exotic parts of the world including the Himalayas and Cambodia, although there are also options to suit all travellers.

Sharon added: “There are also trips closer to home in the Scottish Highlands, Channel Islands and France, to name just a few.

“It’s a great way for people to travel somewhere they’ve never been before while making a real difference to the lives abused, abandoned and injured animals in Angus.

“There is a registration fee for all the trips as well as a minimum fund-raising target and we’ll do everything we can to help people meet their goal.

“We’d love to hear from anyone interested in taking on one of these exciting challenges and we’ve no doubt that those who sign up will never forget their experience.”

Anyone interested in taking part in one of these exciting events can call the Scottish SPCA fund-raising team on 03000 999 999 (option 4) or email fund-raising@scottishspca.org for further information.
