Caudwell Children fundraiser 30/07/11

It’s a giving few weeks.

What d’ya mean “what?”

Every so often the Dog throws open its doors to charidee events. The walls of our fine establishment are rammed full with lovely, altruistic people and thus every so often we have a night to raise a bit of cash. This Saturday is one such occasion.

The lovely Sophie Benko set out to cobble together a grand for Caudwell Children. Off the back of some prior fundraising she’s already raised over £800! Fantastic work! Now its our turn to turn up and turn out our pockets to take her over four figures (and hopefully much more).

Why should you? Well here’s a bit of info about the charity in question. Take your time to read it and you’ll see why Soph is doing this.
