Buckinghamshire-based Hearing Dogs for Deaf People 'train clever dogs to help deaf people'. The dogs bring 'independence, confidence and companionship' to their deaf owners. The charity currently supports 900 working hearing dog partnerships in the UK. £40,000 is the lifetime training and supporting cost for each dog. They rely heavily on their supporters and fund-raising. One way we can all help is by buying some of their charity Christmas cards from the Cards for Good Causes charity shop in our church. It is open Monday to Saturday 10am-4pm until 17th December. For the Hearing Dogs for Deaf People's website, click here.
