Trembling from heat exhaustion in a burning metal cage, left without food, water or shelter, unaware of love or affection. This is how I first encountered 'Dinky', the puppy I went on to rescue from Qatar's 'Souq Waqif'. A story shared by hundreds of other animals, Dinky had endured horrifying cruelty in the marketplace. Sadly, my efforts were too late - Dinky died just six days later from distemper and parvovirus aged just six weeks old.

My puppy taught me what it was to love and trust, unconditionally, in the few days I had the honour of knowing and loving him too.

Working together with Qatar's '2nd Chance Animal Shelter', I will be raising funds for the shelter to help them continue their invaluable work in Doha. Sanctuary to over 100 dogs, the shelter rescues abandoned animals and actively campaigns for positive change in animal welfare. Currently, their aim is to save enough funds to build a bigger shelter to help even more dogs in need.

How? I will be completing an 8 mile sponsored walk with my partner through the vales of Staffordshire! A truly taxing task for somebody who gets out of breath walking up a flight of stairs...

Please give as much or as little as you can to help me support '2nd Chance'. Just £1 can feed a medium rescue dog for a day.
