Having raised impressive sums for Cancer Research in 2015 and the Make a Wish Foundation in 2016, for this year(2017) members of the club have voted to support Canine Partners.
The charity is dedicated to helping transform the lives of people with disabilities by partnering them with one of their amazing assistance dogs. Across the country their dogs help people with everyday tasks such as loading and unloading the washing machine, picking up dropped items and getting help in an emergency. A canine partner is trained to meet each person’s individual needs, including those injured servicemen and women that the charity help.
The club has set an initial target of raising £800 which will allow the purchase of a puppy ready for training
Ways to help the club reach our target
Charity events – the club is planning some fun social events for members. Support us by coming along. Keep an eye on our ‘news’ section for details.
Collect stamps – from home, work, business, clubs, church, congregations, schools. Give them to one of the committee members.
Distribute collecting tins – let us know if you want a tin.
Celebration gifts – next time you’re celebrating a special occasion why not ask for donations in aid of the charity instead of unwanted gifts.
Every penny will go into the charity pot and with your help we will soon reach our target.
