Enjoy a delicious two course lunch in the company of Joan Harrington from Medical Detection Dogs, a registered charity which aims to transform disease detection by harnessing the extraordinary smelling power of dogs.
In 2004, Medical Detection Dogs contributed to the first ever scientific investigation into the detection of bladder cancer using dogs to screen urine samples. This first study proved that cancer produces a distinctive odour that dogs could detect.
Co-founded in 2008, by a team who were convinced dogs could be trained to detect the odour of human cancer and other diseases, Medical Detection Dogs has consistently achieved 93 percert reliability in training trials and its pioneering research.
Medical Detection Dogs also train alert assistance dogs for people with life threatening conditions, giving them greater independence and improving their lives immeasurably.
Join us in The Shelburne Restaurant at Bowood Hotel, from 12:30pm, for lunch at 1:00pm, to find out more!
Two courses £25.00.
£5 from each person goes towards the local Wiltshire Bobby Van Trust.
