As dog lovers, my wife Pam and I are huge supporters of the great work that is done by the Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. It costs over £18m a year to run Battersea and events are the cornerstone of their fundraising efforts, so we were delighted to attend the Collars & Coats Gala Ball.

This year the theme was 'Hollywoof'. Hosted by Paul O' Grady and Amanda Holden, we were treated to first class entertainment, high fashion and perfectly preened pooches as world class designers including Jenny Packham, Matthew Williamson and Vivienne Westwood created couture coats for the dogs. It was an unforgettable night.

We at Dr Nick Lowe did our bit by providing out award winning Dual Action Deep Wrinkle Filler for inclusion in the goody bags. To get involved and help raise money and awareness for the home, visit their website here.
