On Tuesday 12 February, volunteer speaker Bev Scammell went to give a talk at Fareham College in Hampshire, just along the south coast from our Southern Training Centre in Midhurst.

The college was particularly interested in how the dogs were trained and used to help people with physical disabilities, as this is a topic for their Health and Social Care students.

The class was amazed by demonstration dog Tina with her human handler, also called Tina! The duo demonstrated the core skills of tug, touch and retrieve and showed the students how these skills can be used to fulfil a wide range of tasks around the home.

Not only was the group fascinated by the work of the charity, but they also kindly held a cake sale to raise vital funds and presented us with a cheque for £103.

A big thank you to Stephanie, the class lecturer, who invited us and to her group of first-class cake makers and sellers!
