The High Sheriff of Greater Manchester is extending a personal invitation to celebrate Chinese New Year at a unique event. 

This is the perfect celebration for dog lovers, hippophiles (horse lovers!) and everyone who thinks that Greater Manchester Police (GMP) is doing a great job in Greater Manchester!

High Sheriff Kui Man Gerry Yeung OBE DL is inviting people to celebrate the Year of the Dog at the GMP Dog & Horse Training Centre. Guests will be invited to have an exclusive tour of the centre, which is not usually open to the public, and where Police Dog & Horse Training and Agility displays can be seen up close and personal.

Gerry, the very first Chinese High Sheriff in the UK, and a proud Chinese Mancunian, said: “As High Sheriff of Greater Manchester, my main task is to connect and engage with the charitable, voluntary, faith, ethnic, cultural and business communities in the county. I would like to invite anyone interested in my role or the charity to come along as my personal guest, enjoy delicious Dim Sum from Yang Sing Cathay and the best champagne, kindly donated by restaurant Randall & Aubin.”

The event will be an opportunity to find out more about the role of the High Sheriff and about the Greater Manchester High Sheriff’s Police Trust and the work they do in local communities.

Glen Lockett, the Head of Income Generation for the Greater Manchester High Sheriff's Police Trust explains about the charity:

Greater Manchester High Sheriff's Police Trust offers communities, organisations and groups within Greater Manchester the opportunity to grow and develop for the benefit of the general public. We provide financial support to meet the, ever changing, needs of society, by funding projects that help to reduce crime and support vulnerable people of all ages, groups, sexes and faiths.

"With your help we can make Greater Manchester an even better place to live and work.

"Following last year’s Arena attack, the Trust is also providing recovery funds to bring communities together. Working together is our agenda for the future and we are grateful to those supporting us.”

The event will be held on:  Thursday 22nd February 2018   Time: 3pm- 6pm

Venue: GM Police Sports & Social Club, Hough End, Mauldeth Rd West, Chorlton, M21 7SX

The event is free of charge, but a raffle will be held on the evening in support of the Greater Manchester High Sheriff's Police Trust
