FORTHCOMING FUNDRAISING EVENTS

 

SUPPER TALK on THURSDAY 16th March, 7.30pm
WOODCARVING AND THE WYCOMBE RED LION
£18 including 2 course supper
COLIN MANTRIPP, master carver, is the craftsman who is currently repairing the iconic Wycombe Red Lion.  He is passionate about wood and will talk about his work on the Red Lion as well as what he does as an artist craftsman in England and beyond, wood carving, and tales about the people he meets and the life he leads.  He also promises to bring many things to see, touch and talk about.

The evening will follow our usual format with the talk first, followed by supper and then over coffee you will be able to ask questions.  We will not have a licence but you are welcome to bring your own drinks.  To reserve places please contact Beth by email to office@srpf.org.uk or phone 01494 881037.

 

SUPPER TALK on THURSDAY 20th APRIL, 7.30pm
MEDICAL DETECTION DOGS
£18 including 2 course supper
We all know how acute a dog’s sense of smell is and you will be aware of sniffer dogs who work with Police and Customs detecting drugs, guns and money, but did you know about dogs trained to detect when a diabetic is about to lapse into a coma?  If your answer was yes, then have you heard about dogs who can detect certain cancers in laboratory conditions?  Geoff Richardson will talk about the different ways in which dogs are being trained to detect diseases, particularly cancers, and how they act as assistance and alert dogs for people with chronic conditions.  Whether you are a dog lover or not, you will be fascinated to learn what they can do.

The evening will follow our usual format with the talk first, followed by supper and then over coffee you will be able to ask questions.  We will not have a licence but you are welcome to bring your own drinks.  To reserve places please contact Beth by email to office@srpf.org.uk or phone 01494 881037.
