Sarah is joined by Dr. Leigh-Anne Brown, a vet and the owner of Vets4Pets in Harrogate, Nicky Trevorrow, Behaviour Manager at Cats Protection and Bill Lambert, Health and Breeder Services Manager at the Kennel Club.

To discuss this more Sarah was joined by Belinda Phipps from the Fawcett Society, Anna Sofat, the founder of Addidi, and Praseeda Nair from Vitesse Media, which is staging the Women in Finance Awards.
If you're a millenial - or younger - you're far more likely to use a peer-to-peer lender or crowdfunder than your parents' generation. The peer-to-peer lending and crowdfunding markets have grown rapidly and with a rise in the number of financial disrupters, traditional ways of investing and borrowing are being challenged. And others are choosing crowdfunding as a way of raising money for anything from paying off debts to tuition fees.
