A fund-raising talk will be given next week in aid of a good local cause.

The talk entitled “It’s a dog’s life” – the similarities between how barristers and police dogs are trained – will be given by Mr Patrick Maddams, sub-treasurer of The Honourable Society of the Inner Temple, responsible for the training of barristers.

It will be held next Thursday (January 22nd) at 7-30 pm at Mytton Fold Hotel, Whalley Old Road, Langho, to raise more money for the Retired Police Dogs Benevolent Fund.

Mr Maddams, who has previously visited the Metropolitan Police dog training establishment at Keston in Kent to see how dogs are trained in disarming criminals with dangerous weapons, crowd control, drug detection and even searching for dead bodies, said: “This talk will be a light-hearted way of describing to young people interested in a career as barristers what it is all about and, for dog lovers, some heart warming anecdotes about how much we owe our police dogs and their handlers.” Tickets are priced £10 each (includes supper) by calling 01254 823136 or 01282 771203.
