Falkirk woman runs London Marathon for Scotland’s animals

A Falkirk woman is running the London Marathon in aid of the Scottish SPCA for a second time.

LouiseLouise Campbell, from Polmont, will be running her second marathon for Scotland’s animal welfare charity.

Choosing a charity to support was an easy decision for Louise, who said running in support of the Scottish SPCA was a dream come true.

Louise said, “The Scottish SPCA rescue all animals, both domestic and wildlife, nurturing and nursing them back to health before finding them new homes or releasing them back into the wild.

“I want to raise as much money as I possibly can for the charity and hopefully make a difference to an animal’s life.

“I ran the London Marathon last year for the Scottish SPCA too and raised more than the fundraising amount thanks to my amazing family and friends and hope to do the same again this year!”

Louise’s training is going well and she recently achieved a half marathon personal best.

Diane Aitchison, manager of our Edinburgh Rescue and Rehoming Centre, said, “We think that Louise’s efforts are incredible.

“This is such an amazing challenge to take on and we’re extremely grateful to Louise for her continued support of the Society as we rely solely on the generosity of the public to help us care for abused, abandoned and neglected animals each year.

“We’re all rooting for Louise and wish her the very best for the big day.”
