Tylehurst lodge recently donated £3,000, collected at their ladies evening, to Hearing Dogs for Deaf People. The charity offers a life changing level of independence, confidence and companionship to deaf people by providing dogs trained to alert recipients to important every day sounds and danger signals.
The cheque was presented on behalf of the lodge by Paul & Sue Thomsett at the Hearing Dogs for Deaf People centre in Princess Risborough. They were treated to a guided tour of the facilities and saw first-hand the lengthy and costly process of training these working dogs. Paul & Sue are joined in the picture by Elin Dobson (left) the regional dog socialising trainer, and Fudge and Dora (two 15 week old dogs in training).
