You did it UK team!!!!!!

So proud to let you know that our UK team achieved the impossible this weekend. I don't who had the original idea but before we knew it, our UK Director Dave and his team were telling us that they were going to rise to the challenge of walking the three peaks of the UK - Ben Nevis, Scarfell and Snowdon - and all in 24 hours! Calling them on Saturday evening China time just before they set off, it was clear they were wondering what on earth they were doing. An excited Dave said they were as ready as they could be, although did I detect slightly nervous laughter in the background as I wished them all the best of British luck!

But they did us proud - as we knew they would. Dave, Lara, Gill, Mark and James did the walking, with Fiona and Nicky providing the all-important back up and supplies.

Leaving you with Dave's text received at 2am this morning - which said: "Dear Jill, please let Jasper and Eddie know that we did it. Three mountains in three different countries in a total of 23.5 hours. At least 4k on its way to the fluffies. Yippee!"

Brilliant job our UK family from staff and supporters across the globe - no doubt you'll be sleeping for the next 23.5 hours - peacefully I hope; knowing that you've raised profile and much needed funds for Jasper and the bears, Eddie and the dogs and cats, and all the animals who depend on truly remarkable feats like this.
