Congratulations to Dan for completing the Thames Bridge Trek!

30 September 2019
Congratulations to Dan for completing the Thames Bridge Trek! A big thank you to Dan Merton for taking on the Thames Bridges Trek on Saturday the 7th of September in order to raise funds for the Cats Protection Brighton and Horsham branches!

Starting from Bishop's Park next to Putney Bridge at 11:10am in the morning, Dan set off on his 25km walk, passing over another 15 famous bridges including the Battersea, Chelsea, Westminster, and Millennium bridges and ending with Tower Bridge in just over 6 hours - 2 hours less than his first challenge in 2017.

Thus far, Dan has raised £1,158 in sponsorship, including a £500 pound for pound donation from his employers Legal & General. If you would like to top his total up a little more, please visit his JustGiving page.

Over the course of three years of fundraising and walking challenges, Dan has raised almost £3,500 for Cats Protection - a tremendous amount which has certainly helped a lot of cats in our care. His own four cats will be very proud of him!

If reading this has inspired you to take on a challenge to help raise funds for Cats Protection, head over to https://www.cats.org.uk/challenge, where there are all sorts of opportunities from walks and runs to international experiences which you can take part in - good luck!
