It promises to be a wonderful afternoon of tea-drinking, cake-eating, and chatting to friends both old and new … human and canine.

There is also a raffle with some wonderful prizes, including one for our canine guests, as well as a very precious set of Formula 1 tickets. And all this whilst at the same time making money for a charity which has transformed my life and the lives of many others with sight loss beyond recognition – Guide Dogs. Your attendance at the party will enable Guide Dogs to help transform the life of another visually-impaired person, just as they have done for me, so I really hope you can make it as it would be lovely to see you.
