We are extremely grateful for the donation, which will contribute towards our costs of training and providing assistance dogs for people currently on our waiting list.
The Prime Warden of the Goldsmiths’ Company, Michael Prideaux, said:
“In addition to the Goldsmiths’ Charity Company’s work fostering and supporting the craft and trade of the goldsmith, silversmith and jeweller, the company continues to support charities working across a spectrum of critical issues.
At the start of the decade running up to our 700th Anniversary in 2027, we committed to spending £70m over the following ten years to strengthen the trade we serve and to improve the lives of those in London and around the UK.”
Our Trusts and Grants Officer, Sara Read, said this grant will achieve the objectives of the Goldsmith’s Company as it will be a direct benefit to those Canine Partners serves, helping the charity to train more dogs for people with physical disabilities to live with greater security, comfort, dignity and independence in the coming years.
