London Marathon 2018: Help Matt cross the finish line

Matt and Bertie

Meet Matt – one of our vets. He’s seen first-hand the marathon effort our vet teams make each day to help poorly pets. So he’s taking on a challenge of his own – the London Marathon!

Can you sponsor him to run the 26 mile course and raise money for the pets who need us?

A message from Matt

"I see the pets that need us every day, from emergency cases - like treating a dog who'd impaled itself on a branch - to helping pets with arthritis stay pain-free.

I decided to try and raise money for our life-saving service. Being on my feet all day as a vet is hard work, so training after a long shift can seem daunting. Luckily, I have my furry training buddy, Bertie, by my side!

I know that you love pets, so I really hope you'll sponsor me today - just 50p per mile could help one of our nurses check up on a poorly pet.

PDSA has run on this kind of support for 100 years. Every donation really does help."
