Stuart Dilworth, one of the gentlemen Affinity supports, got up-close-and-personal with a spectacular bird of prey recently.
Stuart, who was visiting Accrington town centre with support worker Karrie Ashworth, was shopping when he spotted the bird of prey show.
Given the chance to hold a bird, Stuart picked a nine month old owl called Blue, pictured.
He really enjoyed the experience and can’t wait to go back when the show is next in town. Stuart has his eye on holding the largest bird featured – around three feet tall!
