The Southern Golden Retriever Society Display Team will be supporting the Hearing Dogs for Deaf people charity when they celebrate their 25th anniversary on Saturday, 23rd June, at Ightham Mote, near Sevenoaks in Kent.
The event opens at 2 pm and will be formally opened by Ann Widdecombe MP at 2.30 pm. The team will perform their Crufts display at 3 pm. In addition to the Display Team, there will be Hearing Dog demonstrations, a gundog display, parade of Hearing Dog partnerships, book signings and the chance to win a Silver Honda 4x4 CRV.
Display Team manager, Karen Menter, said "We‚re delighted to support this worthwhile charity at this wonderful National Trust venue. There is no entry charge to the Hearing Dogs for the Deaf event but if visitors want to see Ightham Mote - an outstanding 14th century moated manor house - the National Trust charge £9.50 to non-National Trust visitors, £4.75 for children and free as usual for National Trust members. Visitors who have a copy of the charity’s Favour magazine can enjoy the group rate entrance fee of just £7.50. There is an extensive garden and interesting walks in the surrounding woodland. A perfect afternoon out for all the family."
