Each year, thousands of runners push their perseverance and passion to the limit and take on the super-scenic 10k and half marathon routes at the AJ Bell Great Bristol Run. If stunning views, inspiring history and graffiti murals are your thing, then the Great Bristol Run is right up your street. But it’s not just the inspiring scenery that attracts runners from far and wide: the fast, flat course also makes this event perfect for those on the hunt for a new personal best – or just looking to get to the finish line!
"The Cotswolds Dogs and Cats Home is a rescue and rehoming centre run by an independent branch of the RSPCA. All of our funding comes from the support of our local community and is run by a dedicated team of staff and volunteers.
Each year we rehome hundreds of the county's most vulnerable animals, many of whom have been mistreated, abandoned, and are in ill health. Once in our care, the team works closely to rehabilitate the animals, ready to find their new forever homes. We are proud to have a non-destruction policy and keep the animals in our care until they have found the right family.
All animals are neutered, vaccinated and treated for fleas, ticks and worms. Those suffering with further health problems will be treated with us, sometimes costing our charity thousands of pounds each year.
We also run various programmes to give back to our local community, including our low-cost vet clinics, pet food banks and pet retreat scheme."
