Our charity this week is Support Dogs



This week Dan was privileged to visit Support Dogs to present them with their donation of £1000. He was able to meet some of the team there and a couple of dogs who are being currently being trained by them.

Support Dogs are dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children and adults with various challenging medical conditions. They train and support specialist assistance dogs in order to achieve this. They specialise in providing: autism assistance dogs for autistic children - providing safety for the child and helping to reduce stress in social environments; seizure alert dogs for people with epilepsy - these dogs are 100% effective in providing an alert up to 1 hour ahead of a seizure occurs; disability assistance dogs for people with physical disabilities - here the client's own pet dog is trained to perform tasks which are specifically tailored to their individual needs providing them with greater independance and safety.

All these services are provided completely free of charge. The charity receives no government funding and therefore relies solely on voluntary contributions - so our donation of £1000 will make a big difference enabling them to train a number of life saving assistance dogs.

Thanks as ever for your continued generosity which is helping such a range of charities across the city. Please do keep nominating charities and good causes and of course we will keep you updated as to where your donations are going.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend.
