Charity's man goes on the run for horse welfare

Spurred on by the shocking, recent horse welfare case in Amersham, International League for the Protection of Horses' (ILPH) Deputy Chief Executive Tony Tyler is donning his running shoes to take part in the Edinburgh Marathon in aid of the ILPH.

"Having worked at the ILPH for the past eight years, I have seen some horrendous welfare cases brought into our Centres," says Tony.

"The most recent one at Spindles Farm, Amersham has shocked all of us. The ILPH took in 11 of these horses and it will cost many thousands of pounds to rehabilitate and care for them over the next year alone. Sadly this is not the isolated incident people might think. We have other multiple cases being investigated and dealt with throughout the year.

"I have decided to run this year's Edinburgh Marathon to raise funds to help ensure the ILPH is able to continue its vital work. I am training hard to get ready for the 26.2 mile course and would welcome any sponsorship, however small!"
