Staff at a Melton business are taking part in a gruelling fundraiser for the Blue Cross charity, which helps sick, injured and homeless pets.

Assisi Pet Care - based at Pera Business Park – want to raise awareness for the cause and generate £2,000 by virtually cycling, walking and running a total of 1,200 miles – the distance from its HQ to the town of Assisi in central Italy.

Over the month, employees will be logging their miles and steps via an app.
