We are asking people across the county to hold dinner or lunch parties on the weekend of 27-28 February 2010 in aid of both charities.? As a host you can ask as many, or as few, guests as you like and make the meal as formal or informal as you wish.? What we do?ask is that each of your friends gives a donation. To add to the fun there will be an on-line auction which will enable guests to bid for some fantastic prizes.
