To raise money for the STV Appeal 2012, Scotland’s favourite weatherman Sean Batty will take on the challenge of cycling from Glasgow to Edinburgh joined by his four-legged friend, Jock the dog.
Sean and Jock’s challenge, to raise money for children and young people affected by poverty in Scotland, will see them set off pedalling from Glasgow on Friday 24th August. The duo will arrive in the capital that night in time for Jock to participate in a canine agility challenge at the Scottish Kennel Club Show in Edinburgh on Saturday 25th August.
The cycle challenge will take in stops along the way, including the Falkirk Wheel, and Sean is hoping to meet locals along the route who are raising money for the STV Appeal 2012.
Sean has been training for months for the challenging bike ride and Jock has been receiving expert agility advice from a dog trainer ahead of his first ever performance at Ingliston.
Sean and Jock’s Glasgow to Edinburgh cycle is supported by the Debt Advisory Centre Scotland: “We are proud to be sponsoring Sean Batty and Jock the dog in their weekend challenge in aid of the STV Appeal to raise as much money as possible for children living in poverty throughout Scotland. We know that Sean and Jock the dog have a huge challenge ahead, that’s why we’re giving them support and help when they need it. We wish them all the best of luck and we hope that their magnificent efforts will help make child poverty in Scotland a thing of the past.”
The STV Appeal was launched in 2011 by The Hunter Foundation and STV, and in its inaugural year raised almost £1.3m.
