A SIDFORD vet has been putting her best foot forward to raise nearly £500 for an animal charity.

Andrea Lynch recently competed in the Exeter Half Marathon to raise money for PetSavers.

And the 39-year-old, who works at Raddenstiles veterinary centres in Sidford and Exmouth, is now gearing up for a full marathon in her home town of Londonderry at the beginning of June.

She said: “I’ve seen in practice the benefits of research carried out by colleagues who have received funding from PetSavers.

“As they support our pets and us, I felt it was only right that I should return the support.”

The money will support PetSavers in its efforts to advance the science of small animal medicine and surgery.

Andrea is now in training for the Walled City Marathon in Londonderry on June 1.
