Nurse hits new heights

A veterinary nurse from the Much Wenlock branch of Severn Edge Vets recently undertook a trek to Everest Base Camp. Eleanor Naylor made the journey to raise money for Dogs Trust and to date has raised £1,210.

Eleanor prepared for the gruelling trek by training in the Shropshire hills, Snowdonia and the Scottish Highlands as well as taking part in the Three Peaks Challenge. Contending with serious altitude for the first time, the keen hiker faced the challenge of a lifetime but successfully reached her goal.

Ahead of her visit to the Roden branch of Dogs Trust to donate the funds, Eleanor said, “Reaching Base Camp made me feel so proud, and knowing I was helping to raise money for a great cause by undertaking my passion was the ultimate buzz. I love that clients, colleagues, family and friends all came together to help me support the charity – I cannot thank them enough for their contribution. It has been a huge boost to my confidence which I now carry forward into my everyday work.”
