Mr Norman Leslie, the vet from Cleveland (now retired ) who gave evidence to the Cumbria Inquiry and who urged the RCVS to be more proactive when dealing with the Government on the subject of the Veterinary Surgeons Act, is walking the Furness Way to raise money for the RCVS Trust and Send a Cow as part of the "Tour de Vets" event.

If you could sponsor Mr Leslie as a mark of our appreciation for all he has done, please do make time to send a cheque, however small, made payable to the RCVS Trust, to

Mr Norman Leslie,

c/o RCVS Trust,

62-64 Horseferry Road,

London

SW1P 2AF.

If all members of the RCVS Council were like Mr Leslie we doubt whether there would ever be any cause for complaint.
