Visit to Hearing Dogs for the Deaf Centre

Holderness Lions had a most enjoyable to The Hearing Dogs for the Deaf centre recently.      We were told how the organisation works and with the aid of a video saw how the dogs are trained from puppies to the day they are matched with a person with heating loss.

We then had the opportunity of seeing a dog putting into practice what had been taught in his training.

A walk round the facilities and the tea and cakes.  It was during this session that a cheque for £500 was presented.
