We are delighted to announce that we raised £450 for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People at our Quiz Night last week. Held at the South Buckinghamshire Golf Club, the event was great fun and very popular, with eight teams competing for the luxury prize of a Fortnum & Mason hamper.
We kicked off with an interesting talk by Mike & Clare Coote, dedicated volunteers for the charity, who gave us an insight into the commitment of taking on a puppy and the training guidelines that go with it. Their delightful Hearing Dog puppies Cooper and Hedley, pictured below, also attended the event.
The charity provides the invaluable gift of independence, confidence and companionship to more and more deaf people. Hearing Dogs receives no government funding and relies on the generosity of members of the public, trusts and companies to continue its important work.
The winning team, “The Old Crocks”, won the Fortnum & Mason hamper, donated by Signia Hearing Aids. We look forward to seeing them bid for the champion title once again at our next Quiz Night in the Spring. Look out for further details.
