They may portray cooks on the hit series Downton Abbey, but on June 29th actresses Lesley Nicol (Mrs. Patmore) and Sophie McShera (Daisy) will offer food for thought as they make an appearance as the special guests at a three course banquet and auction to raise awareness and funds for Medical Detection Dogs.
Organized by Jimmy’s Challenge, the event will take place at The Hilton Avisford Park Hotel in Arundel and will include not only an arrival drink and delicious dishes, but also the opportunity to talk to the actresses, listen to a speech by Lesley Nicol (who took on the role of ambassador for Medical Detection Dogs in late 2011) enjoy music by The Deloreans, and bid on such items as:
A Downton Abbey exclusive experience
A Downton Abbey book autographed by 22 of the popular drama’s stars
A week in the holiday home in the south of France
A Manchester United experience
…and much more!
Proceeds from the fundraising event will benefit Medical Detection Dogs, a charity based in Milton Keyne which trains dogs to detect human diseases and alert their health-compromised human companions to any changes in their condition.
Admission: £60 (£540 for a group booking to 10)
When: June 29, 2013
Where: The Hilton Avisford Park Hotel in Arundel, West Sussex, UK
