A Dogs Breakfast

The HG Wells pub is this morning  hosting a free breakfast to help raise money for the Battersea Dog and Cats Home and also for Express CIC which is a Kindston based 'not for profit' community organisation supporting young people with autism and their families.

Blog reader Mags has been a volunteer for nearly 9 years at the world famous (literally) dogs and cats home and has usually organised an annual coffee morning to raise funds but this year the HG Wells in Cheam Common Road have kindly offered to help.

She has teamed up with her friend Kay who has been helping with the autistic charity who are looking to build a cafe hub in Tolworth where families and the wider community and meet in relaxed surroundings.

It all begins about now (9:30am) and continues on until noon.

Breakfast cakes have been donated by Sainsburys, Greggs and others so you are welcome to munch for gratis. However it is hoped that those with a few spare pennies might put them in the donation pot...

Update (a few weeks later)

The event raise £907 to be shared equally by three charities. Around 130 people attended the morning bringing around 17 dogs with them including some ex-battersea ones. Mags who organise the event wished to thanks the HG Wells for providing breakfast, Sainsbury's, Wetherspoons, Mc Donalds, Greggs, Burger King & Costa Coffee for donating cakes & cups."
