different Tapas dishes to try and it should be a really good night so we hope as many people
as possible can attend.

to go can you let me know as soon as possible so I can reserve the necessary number of
places. We will then need a cheque made payable to Headway Gateshead and South
Tyneside by 22 November 2011 please. (Please send cheques to Headway Gateshead and
