Hearing Dogs for Deaf People Newsletter

A warm welcome to your March newsletter, full of all the latest updates from Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.

This year marks our 40th anniversary and four decades of training life-changing hearing dogs. Since training our first dog in a living room back in 1982 we have grown steadily but substantially, thanks to the support of everyone in the Hearing Dogs family. Thanks to your support we now train hundreds of dogs, and help thousands of deaf people, every year. Thank you.

From now until March next year, we will be celebrating the Hearing Dogs family, by sharing inspiring stories of the people we help, showcasing the amazing things our hearing dogs do, and holding fun events across the UK. Information of how you can get involved in these celebrations will be available in future newsletters and on our website, so please do keep an eye out.

We hope you enjoy this edition.
