We did it!!! My sister Maren, coordinator of the London support group, and I completed the Istanbul Marathon on Sunday 11th November, to raise funds for Animals Asia. Photos will be on the Facebook page shortly, and you can read an update on our website.
We are a group of volunteers who represent Animals Asia in Scotland and are authorised by the Animals Asia UK office to raise funds and awareness. We organise fundraising events and have merchandise & awareness stalls whenever they are available. Everyone is welcome, no matter how much or how little time you have. We aim meet once a month in different locations, mostly in Glasgow, Edinburgh or Stirling.
