Akira volunteer, Lee Harker, will be completing a sponsored walk, which will cover a massive distance of 240km.

Walking from Moraira to Valencia and back again starting on Monday, January 30, Lee is hoping to raise funds for a new dog training and rehabilitation zone at the Akira Dog Sanctuary in Benissa. The centre will help teach rescued dogs new life skills and overcome trauma which will help their potential for adoption.

Lee confirmed “I have been volunteering at the Shelter for nearly three years and it’s become a passion of mine to help as many rescued dogs as possible. If I won the Euro millions I would build the best dog shelter in the world. I haven’t yet so in the meantime, I’m doing this walk.”

Lee appreciates that it’s an expensive time of the year for people, so if you can’t donate he would really appreciate it if you could share his story.
