GEOFF CANTRELL is taking part in THE GREAT OUTDOORS CHALLENGE in aid of BOXER RESCUE SERVICE (SOUTHERN)
I have now successfully completed The Great Outdoors Challenge...what's that? Those of you who read my original message will know that it is a self supported annual backpacking event from the west coast of Scotland to the east. (http://www.tgomagazine.co.uk/tgochallenge/ )
I set out from the west coast port of Mallaig on Friday May 8th, crossing to Knoydart by the ferry and then walked to Stonehaven, Arriving yesterday Wednesday 20th May after 314kms, 7224m of climbing and only three nights in hostels, the remainder being in my tent. I will then took the bus to the final checkpoint in Montrose.
While I was walking solo, there were 300 of us taking part from 13 different starting points and paths crossed and parted as we wandered our way from coast to coast...through sun and rain across some of the wildest most remote parts of this wonderful island of ours. It has been easily the toughest thing I have ever undertaken, the weather has done it's best, we have had sunshine and rain, strong winds and frosty nights, but I can say in total honestly that I have enjoyed every moment and want to come back next year. Best of all though has been the knowledge that I was doing it for an outstanding cause, Boxer Rescue Service (Southern). You have given generously for this wonderful cause and I'm confident that those of you who have been waiting to see how I performed will now give generously.
Thank you all for your support.
CONGRATULATIONS AND WELL DONE GEOFF from everyone at Boxer Rescue - A GREAT ACHIEVEMENT!!
rescue and re-home Boxer dogs throughout Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire and
Kent. Our aim is to provide the best care for every Boxer that comes to
us and to find them their new loving home.
our dogs are vaccinated, neutered and micro-chipped before being placed
in their new home. All our work is voluntary, and we are funded only
by donations and our own fund raising activities, which we rely heavily
on to pay for kennelling and veterinary fees.
new prospective home is checked out by our team of helpers across the
South East - we take into consideration the new owner’s life style and
circumstances to match the right dog to.

Your donations help dogs like Ruben .....
Ruben had been found tied up in a barn in Ireland. As well as neglected, he was terribly emaciated, dehydrated and infested with worms. We were shocked and very sad to see this poor depressed Boxer in such a state. He arrived at our kennels weighing only 19 kgs, his gums were pale and cold - our vet took a blood test, and he was treated for the flea and worm infestation, we fed him four small nutritious meals a day, and made sure he had plenty of soft blankets in his bed! The blood test showed a very low red blood count, so another blood test would need to be taken 10 days later. Within the first week we started to notice his eyes looked brighter, he looked a little happier and his little tail started
to wag! During the next 3 weeks his weight steadily increased, and the
blood test showed a big improvement, almost normal - he was on the road
As you can see in the photo, he is now a strong and healthy boy, and very happy in his new home, where he loves to play ball and go for walks in the woods near his home. He is now a healthy 28kgs - and totally unrecognisable from when he first arrived with us. Well done Ruben, and thank you to his new mum and dad for giving him the caring and loving home he truly deserves.
What a handsome lad he is!
