Hearing dog gets funds following giraffe auction

With thanks to the kind generosity from our auctioned giraffe last Autumn when we participated in the Horsham Giraffe Trail, we are delighted to be able to put the proceeds towards sponsoring a Hearing Dog through its training journey until it begins its new life working with a deaf person.

Hearing Dogs provide independence and confidence by alerting deaf people to important sounds and danger signals. Emotionally these dogs help deaf people overcome some of the isolation and the loneliness that deafness can bring. Rob said:“We are grateful for the support we received that has enabled us to give an amazing gift back to the hearing loss community”.
