A BALLYMONEY vet has recently completed a gruelling cycle from Land's End to John O'Groats raising over £2000 for two charities close to his heart.
David Strang, a Partner at Knockanboy Vets in Dervock, cycled nearly 100 miles a day for 12 days to complete the 1106 mile route.
David did this impressive feat during the summer with five others, vet friends of his from England and a couple of their kids.
He raised £1300 for Macmillan Cancer Support and another £750 for BARK animal shelter in the process.
David said: "My friends were doing it this year and I said 'I'm in'" because it's something I've always wanted to do. It's one of those things if you're into cycling, as I am, then you say 'one day I have to do that'. It's a box to tick and I grabbed the opportunity to do so this year."
Commenting on the charities he has chosen to support, he said: "It was also great to get the opportunity to raise some money for the charities. Macmillan Cancer Support is a great charity so it was a pleasure to support them. And being a vet I thought it would be good to support a pet charity and BARK is right on our doorstep. They do cats and dogs both, a lot of places either just do cats, or dogs, so I decided it would be great to support them too."
