Laura Ross an Assistant Procurement Specialist with NHS South of England Procurement Services (SoEPS), is a very keen animal lover. So much so that she is planning a major ‘walk’ in support of our four-legged friends.

How do we know all this you ask?

Well Laura (and friends) are planning to hike 52 miles in an Ultra Marathon, the Race to the King in just 24 hours in aid of the RSPCA.

Laura said “I used to work in the Wildlife Division and would like to help them with their operational costs. They rescue injured and orphaned wildlife, rehabilitate and then release back to the wild. This is on top of all the work they do with Animal Welfare for domestics and farm animals in the UK.”

She told us that “Both of my dogs are rescue dogs, without organisations like the RSPCA they wouldn’t be lounging on a sofa in their golden years like they are today!”

Laura’s colleagues at SoEPS have all rallied round to sponsor her with this worthwhile cause and encourage anyone wishing to sponsor or donate to visit her Just Giving page at

We all wish her Good Luck!
