 In News, Paws In the News

A South African expatriate went around Doha on his scooter for 16 hours recently on a charity adventure to raise awareness and funds for a non-profit animal rescue and shelter.

Gavin McNeil set off from Corniche and scooted 95km to support Paws Rescue Qatar (Paws), which provides a safe haven for homeless animals until they can be placed in loving homes.

McNeil kicked off his adventure on the evening of May 11 in the presence of his family and Paws supporters and its founding members, Alison Caldwell and Emily Blenkinsop.

His aim was to cover 100km in a 12 hour period, starting off at the fountains on the Doha corniche and finishing at the same location. He covered the areas of Qatar University, Duhail up to Umslal Mohamed and returned through Gharaffa, Al Waab back to Corniche, taking a total of 16 hours and covering 95km.
