SPANA supporter Amanda after running the Great Run Manchester half marathon for charity

“As a veterinary nurse what I like about SPANA is they don’t just provide financial aid to working animals abroad, they also provide education. So the family who rely on their donkey etc. for their financial income can learn how to provide a happier, healthier, longer life for the animal. I ran the Great Manchester 10KM for SPANA to help spread this priceless education worldwide and I will gladly do it again.”
– Amanda Bracewell, 10k Great Manchester Run, 2016
