Snowy The Mouse Man (R.I.P.)

Snowy The Mouse Man (R.I.P.)

In the late 1970's I recall seeing Snowy Farr MBE, in Petty Cury, Cambridge collecting for the Guide Dogs for the Blind.

He was well into his seventies then and every Saturday he would cycle with his entourage of animals into Cambridge centre and pose for photos.

I will always recall his gentlemanly manner and his terrific way with children.

Over the years he must have gathered well over £100,000's for the charity.

I wish there were more like him in this world.

BTW. His jacket of is the type worn by the Coldstream Guards.
