The Ponte Plodders

About the group

4 members of Greenwood and Brown Veterinary Surgery, plus 1 husband, from Pontefract in West Yorkshire, not forgetting our superb support team of 2 who got us where we needed to be at the time we needed to be there! We enjoy getting out and doing physical challenges - new stuff for some who had never ridden bikes or climbed mountains before. And if we're putting some effort in why not raise some money for a good cause. We started with the Guide Dogs for the Blind Coniston Challenge 2 years ago, 2 of us cycled Lands End to John o' Groats for the local hospice and the RNLI last year, then a "practice run" at the Yorkshire 3 Peaks last year "just for fun" and then this year, the National 3 Peaks for a local hospital childrens ward after the boss's baby daughter was diagnosed with a severe liver problem. So far for this last charity we have raised nearly £1500, thanks to the generosity of families, friends and our lovely clients.
