A seven-year-old girl from Stanmore has raised more than £1,500 for an animal welfare charity with an exhausting challenge.
Elizabeth Ventre walked 10 miles on February 12 to raise money for Stanmore-based animal charity, Little Furries Rabbit Rescue.
She set herself a target of raising £500, and was thrilled to more than treble it, having raised £1,550 so far through JustGiving.
Following the challenge, Elizabeth said: “I’m so grateful to all the people who sponsored me and I’m really pleased with how much I raised.
“Little Furries Rabbit Rescue is amazing and I loved meeting all the animals.”
Her parents, Gina and Phil, told StanmoreNews: “Elizabeth loves animals and really wanted to do something to help them. She chose to walk 10 miles as she wanted to challenge herself.
“We couldn’t be prouder of Elizabeth. She happily clocked up the miles and still had a big smile on her face at the end.”
A spokesperson for Little Furries Rabbit Rescue added: “We’re thrilled to have received the support of this incredible young girl who wanted to help the bunnies.
“The funds raised will go towards complex surgery costs. We’re very thankful.”
The charity aims to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home abused, abandoned and neglected domestic rabbits. You can find out more at www.littlefurriesrabbitrescue.com
