Over the coming days we’ve got some great news to share with you on fundraising. Here’s our first:

We are delighted to announce that we have received funding from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by The National Lottery Community Fund. This grant has made it possible to fully equip new members and dogs with all the essential equipment and PPE they need.
Thank you to the Government for making this possible.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn;
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning,
We will remember them.

This week we sadly had to say goodbye to Merlin, one of our L3 Search Dogs after a short illness.
Merlin was a very special dog who followed in his sister Sassys footsteps in qualifying as an area Search Dog.
He never failed to make an impression on everyone who met him. Whether it was his massive grin, his enviable work ethic or his penchant for jellyfish and face wipes.
He will be dearly missed by everyone.
Stand down Merlin.
