Trust K9 at UKHA

On Tuesday night, the 12th of March to be exact!, me and Tracey headed on down to the UMI hotel in London for the monthly UKHA meeting,  to represent Trust K9 and our bed bug sniffer dog team.

All attendees were given the option to provide a prize for the raffle, and Trust K9 gave a free bed bug sniffer dog search for up to 10 rooms.  Whilst hotels use bed bug dogs to get a clear picture of how far a bed bug problem has spread throughout their hotel, they also use us to check hotel rooms and give the all clear that they are bed bug free. This way a Hotel can show diligence if they are unlucky enough to have an outbreak – and get rid of the problem quickly!

We walked from Bayswater train station and got lost but eventually found out as a nice young gentleman pointed us in the right direction.

Our 'Bug Blaster' Cocktail

We were greeted by the smiley UKHA committee and sent us in the direction of the cocktail bar. The first challenge of the evening was to name the cocktail which we called Trust K9’s bed bug blaster and the winner would receive a bottle of champagne. Unfortunately our names weren’t called!

Richard Stevens from Work Safe  gave a speech about an innovative tool; him and his team have created and our hosts provided us with a sushi making class but we did more eating than making!

We had singers from the Miss Saigon cast in London which then finished  of the evening with karaoke.

The raffle prizes were drawn and one very lucky winner won the 10 room bed bug sniffer dog search! We didn’t win anything….unlucky night for prizes!

We left the night on a good note as we made some great friends. Richard and Dean from Diversey who are a sponsor of UKHA, Minnie from Spot Raiders who we discovered is a bigger chocolate lover than us! And last but not least the lovely Jane Robson from The Fine Cotton Company.
