Events manager for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People Melanie Tyrer said: “We are thrilled that three of our celebrity supporters will be opening our biggest show of the year, and we look forward to welcoming Pam St Clement, Tim Vincent and Marc Abraham to our beautiful grounds in Buckinghamshire.
“The celebrities will also be judging our dog show class, ‘waggiest tail’, so we hope to see lots of visitors and their four-legged friends in the morning!
“Our Late Summer Show promises to be a fun day out for all the family, with lots on offer including our Kids Zone, a classic car display, and lots of delicious food stalls.
“Visitors can enter their pooches into our all-day fun dog show, watch our demonstration team in action, and meet lots of gorgeous puppies and hearing dogs on the day. We hope to see you all there!”
Hearing Dogs for Deaf People is a national charity which trains clever dogs to alert deaf people to vital sounds such as the doorbell, fire alarm and alarm clock.
The charity receives no government funding, and all funds raised at the Late Summer Show will help train more hearing dogs for deaf adults and children.
The Late Summer Show will be held at The Grange in Saunderton, Buckinghamshire, on Sunday from 11am to 4pm.
Admission prices are £4 for children and £7 for adults, with family tickets costing £20.

“That's why it's really important we all fight for a cure and support the fantastic work that Parkinson's UK does.
“We'd like to invite everyone to come up with their cheekiest, spookiest costumes and run with us for this great cause.”
Starting at 7pm, runners can choose from a 5k or 10k distance.
There is also a 500m family fun run that starts at 6pm so children can get involved in the fancy dress action.
