There are numerous ways to help and below are some of the events that are volunteers were involved in during the year:
 
Libby, Ashley and Kerry-Lee walked 26.2 miles as part of the Aberdeen Virtual Kiltwalk in September. Whilst there was a distinct lack of kilts and people this year, it was a wonderful way to get some exercise and raise funds for the Charity
 

Michael and Leyland took to their bikes and did a sponsored bike ride. Along with their next door neighbour Craig, raised lots of donations for the Charity after hearing about one of our dogs that needed some extra medical help.

Emily popped on her cycling helmet and along with her Dad, cycled 100km in aid of Thistle Boxer Rescue.  She was inspired by the stories from this year and the dogs that had come into our care.
 
The team braved the weather back in September and held a stall at the Portabella Market in Edinburgh.  The team were on hand to share information about the rescue, whilst raising much needed funds.
