MORAY ANIMAL LOVERS who may also be tempted at having a go at the Edinburgh Marathon Festival this year are being asked to keep the Scottish SPCA in mind.

Scotland’s animal welfare charity has spaces available for various events taking place in Edinburgh on Mary 27 and 28 – including the marathon, half-marathon, 10k and 5k events.

Active Moravians are being invited to take up one of these challenges – and in doing so make a real difference to the lives of animals in their local communities.

Graeme Innes, manager of the Scottish SPCA’s North East Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre said: “The Edinburgh Marathon is a fantastic way to see some of the amazing sights that Scotland has to offer whilst helping animals in need.

“Last year our centre cared for over 1770 animals and we are always so grateful for the support of local people in Moray and throughout the north east.

“If a full marathon sounds too scary, there are shorter runs to choose from, including a 10k, 5k and a 1.5k junior race.”

The Scottish SPCA receives no government or lottery funding support and so relies entirely on the general public to help them in continuing their work rescuing and rehoming animals that are in desperate need of help.

Graeme added: “Anyone who sets themselves the challenge of taking part in one of the events really will be helping save lives.”
