A SPRING coffee morning is to be held at Great Harwood Golf Club, Whalley Road, to raise money for the Retired Lancashire Police Dogs Benevolent Fund.

Set up six years ago by Whalley resident and chairman of the scheme, Sheila Maw, the fund aims to assist police dog handlers to care for their dogs when they become too old for the force. Once a police dog retires responsibility of its expenses (such as veterinary bills) switches from the force to the new owner, often a police dog handler.

The coffee morning will be held on Tuesday, March 20th, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Tickets are £2.50, which includes coffee and biscuits. They can also be bought at the door on the day.
