David Kydd, owner and director at Kydd and Kydd Veterinary Health Centre based in Wimbledon, Merton will be hitting the roads of London during this year's London to Surrey 100 Challenge in a bid to raise funds for Britain's Guide Dogs.

“I'm completing the London to Surrey 100 challenge for Guide Dogs because the essential work that they do changes lives.”

David is cycling in the Prudential London-Surrey 100: This is a 100 mile recreation of the Olympic cycling road race and has to be completed in less than 9 hours. The event takes place on 10th August 2014.

As a vet, David is very keen to try and raise money to help the Guide Dogs for the Blind. This caring association helps many blind and partially sighted people by training and providing wonderful guide dogs who can help bring some independence, freedom and mobility to their lives as well as giving these people a loving friend and companion to be part of their everyday life.

The ability to get around is vital in order to live a full life yet thousands of blind and partially sighted people never leave home alone. Guide Dogs empowers visually impaired people to do that and relies totally on the support of the public to fund the guide dog service.

It costs approx. £48,500 for the lifetime costs of such a dog and there are currently 4,500 working guide dogs in the UK. So ongoing funds are essential for this association to continue its good work.

We know people are asked all the time to give to charities, but if you could manage to sponsor David (even by a small amount), this will be going to a very worthwhile cause.

Donations are being collected in the Kydd and Kydd Veterinary Heath Centre itself, or you could also click here to visit David's Just Giving page!

Good Luck David!
