Canine Auction for Help Dogs

Most of us know about Guide Dogs for the Blind, but few people seem to know about Help Dogs who care for disabled people. I was invited to attend this fund raising auction and to speak about the charity.

My wife Kate had her eye on several items in the auction and placed her commissions with the organisers. It is wonderful to see a well attended function, which is a credit to Shirley Hawkins who publicised it. I enjoyed the lively atmosphere and the privilege of speaking to the wide range of people assembled.
