This year we celebrate our 70th birthday!!

To commemorate 70 years (and 10 years of XLVets), we aim to cover 2800 miles during August and September using transport that does not include an engine. We have cycling, horse riding, scuba diving, space hoppers, swimming, in fact all sorts of activities going on within the Scarsdale team. We are doing all this in aid of 3 charities:

PicsNewsCharity2Help the Street Animals of Morrocco
– our Veterinary Nurse Keyly Hutchinson is heavily involved with this charity, and visits Essouri each year to help them care for the dogs and cats that live on the streets of the town.


PicsNewsCharity3Send a Cow – XL Vets support this charity, with vets from a number of XLVets practices going out to Africa to help teach farmers about animal care and basic veterinary care.


PicsNewsCharity1Hounds for Heroes – what better charity than an animal based charity set up to help those who have fought for our country and our freedom.

 PicsEventsTourdeScarsdaleFinally,  we will be cycling around all 10 practices on Sunday 13th September 2015 on our ‘Tour de Scarsdale’

Staff members and their families will be making the journey around all of our practices in Derby and Burton upon Trent. We will start at Pride Veterinary Centre at 9.30am and finish around 3pm at the Markeaton Lane practice (Farm and Equine). We would love you to be at one of our practices to cheer us along our journey!

How you can help us…

During August and September we will have an excercise bike at the Markeaton, Springwood and Pride Veterinary Centre. Why not pop in and do a few miles for us!!

In addition, to support the fabulous members of our team in their pursuit for 2800 miles, you can sponsor us on our Virgin Money Giving page:
