Visitors are to be welcomed to the Canine Partners Southern Training Centre to see first-hand how the charity’s amazing dogs can transform the lives of people with disabilities.
The information sessions, which are to be held on Saturday 21 September, offer members of the public a fantastic opportunity to find out more about Canine Partners, what they do as a charity and how to support them. Information sessions are held at the training centre in Heyshott, near Midhurst, throughout the year, where you can see a demonstration and hear from an established partner about the difference their canine partner has made to their lives.
The dogs are trained to carry out a range of everyday tasks including picking up and fetching items, opening doors and undressing a person. They can even help load and unload a washing machine and they can fetch help in an emergency.
“By attending an information session, it helps to raise awareness and vital funds for the charity,” says Gemma Tupper, Community Fundraiser for the South.
“It enables Canine Partners to train more dogs to transform even more lives of people living with a wide range of physical disabilities across the UK.”
The information sessions will take place on Saturday 21 September 2019 at 2pm. Canine Partners ask for a suggested donation of £5 per person, which helps to cover the costs for the event and refreshments. The session includes a presentation, a short film, a demonstration and a talk from an established partner.
