RIDERS have raised £48,000 for a Banbury dogs charity.

Companion Care Vets staff took on the Land’s End to John O’Groats for Dogs for the Disabled.

Charity fundraising manager Stephanie Lawless said: “The team from Companion Care put everything they had into both the cycle itself and their fundraising.

“Neither element was easy, and we are incredibly grateful for the hard work and determination that they all put into it.

“The money raised will help us to train more assistance dogs and change the lives of people with disabilities.”

One of the 15 riders, Richard Cherry, said of the 958 mile challenge: “It was an experience we’ll never for a truly wonderful cause.”
