2.20pm a BTW Calendar preview
We'll be opening our zoom event at 2.20pm to give you a chance to settle in and familiarise yourself with the tech - it is new to many, whilst some will be practiced zoomers!
While that's happening, we'll show our preview slideshow, Border Bonanza, with some of the pictures submitted for the 2021 BTW Calendar . . . because we couldn't think of a better way of opening the event than looking at our favourite thing, Border Terriers!

3.10pm Fostering Border Terriers with John & Vanessa Jessop
Our main presentation for the afternoon will be a short talk on their work fostering Border Terriers for BTW, sharing their experience of gaining the trust of Borders who have come from often difficult circumstances and introducing them into their family home. This will be followed by a chance to put your questions to John & Vanessa and the wider BTW panel to share their knowledge and insights on Border Terriers and the work of BTW.
3.30pm Event close
Whilst attendance at this virtual event is free, we are missing our usual opportunity to do some fundraising. If you are able to support us to help continue our work, or are able to make a donation for your entry in our Scavenger Hunt photo competition, we would be grateful if you could visit our JustGiving page to donate what you can.
We hope you'll join us for the afternoon, although we won't be able to get together in person, hopefully we can still enjoy an afternoon of Border Terrier fun!
