Tough Tribe is a unique, inspiring, mixed terrain obstacle race spread over a 10km course, featuring natural and man made obstacles, designed to challenge contestants both physically and mentally. It will be taking place at Stockport Sports Village in Woodley, and Matt would love you and your dog’s support on the day!

The Wellspring is a resource centre for homeless and disadvantaged people. The project is on Harvey St, behind Robinson’s brewery in the centre of Stockport and provides services to homeless and disadvantaged people 365 days a year.

As it is a local charity close to the hearts of Discount Pets, the whole team appreciates all donations. We have supported The Wellspring a number of times in the past, including when Matt has completed the Manchester 10km. Every donation, however small, will help this brilliant charity continue the great work they are doing every day.
