The Fair Oak Widows Club are inspired by what our amazing dogs can do
The Widows Club of Fair Oak, Southampton invited us to deliver a talk all about the work we do, who we do it for and how people can help us in our mission to transform lives.
On Tuesday 9 October 2018, The Widows Club of Fair Oak, Southampton invited us to deliver a talk all about the work we do, who we do it for and how people can help us in our mission to transform lives.
The club, which was set up over 20 years ago, meets regularly at the Fair Oak Village Hall. They were keen to hear about Canine Partners and how they could support us.
Volunteer speaker Bev Scammell went along to deliver the talk, sharing information about the tasks our amazing dogs can do to provide greater independence to people living with physical disabilities. She also discussed the ways in which people can volunteer or fundraise for us.
The group were enamoured by our work and were very keen to make the acquaintance of two fluffy helpers… Ike and Kia!
They generously donated nearly £90, and have agreed to sponsor one of our latest My Amazing Puppy recruits! A huge thank you to the group for their donation.
