As you may be aware the Border Collie Trust has traditionally held a Christmas Party and welcomed guests old and new to come along, meet Santa and help raise funds.

Unfortunately, circumstances beyond our control this year seriously affect our ability to be able to produce an event we would be proud of especially as many people travel long distances to join us.

We have therefore had to make the difficult decision to canel this year's event which was due to be held at the end of November.
