Serendipity strikes again...
I am so grateful for universal timing as I was taken into the grip of the most amazing serendipitous occasion. I say grip, however it is more like the flow...

On Sunday of last week, the 1st of September... as the week spread out before me, I decided that on Monday afternoon I would collect the "big cheque" from Branding Boutique (the excellent business that supplies me with everything marketing) and then I'd organise a photo shoot sometime later in the week. Ann Cromack of Ikat Photography takes my photos and has been donating her time and expertise to photographing the Canine Partner Charity campaign! Thank you so much Ann and the team at Branding Boutique. You never cease to amaze me with your expertise!

Andy Cook, Zoe Maclean and Remus, and myself... all beaming!
Having raised over £1720.00 from the skydive campaign, we wanted to get something special organised to show off the presentation, and it came on Tuesday the 3rd September in the surprise package of Andy Cook, the CEO of Canine Partners UK. He was cycling from Land's End to John O'Groats and just happened to be passing through Largs on Tuesday! He was part of a peleton of 100 cyclists... not all of them were cycling for charity but many were raising funds for various deserving causes. However all descended on our famous Largs landmark. No, not the Pencil monument commemorating the defeat of the Vikings, but the world famous cafe, Nardinis!

Don't you just love it when a plan comes together... especially when you didn't even know that there was a plan!
