Weekend Picks: Hearing Dogs Celebration

Hearing Dogs Celebration: Sat 12th Nov (Chase Meadow Community Centre, Warwick)

Hearing Dogs for Deaf People are holding a celebration event this weekend in Warwick.

There’ll be a hearing dog demonstration during the event so visitors can see first hand how these very clever dogs work to sounds for their deaf recipients.

There’ll also be a number of stallholders selling dog bandanas to pickles and homemade jewellery through to knitted goods.

Hearing Dogs for Deaf People train dogs to help deaf people with everyday sounds that hearing people take for granted, such as the alarm clock, doorbell and smoke alarm.

In addition, the dogs offer independence, confidence and companionship and act as a bridge back into the communities that deaf people are so often isolated from.

This is the fifth year we are holding this event, but this year we are at the new venue of Chase Meadow Community Centre and are very much hoping that the local community will join us too.

There will be stall holders, an auction and perhaps most importantly – lots of cake!”

– Vicky Ryan, Community Fundraising Manager for the Midlands
