Laura initially suggested making a 2017 calendar featuring her doggy clients, which was so successful that she has done it again for 2019.

Laura said: “It’s an honour for me and my clients to donate to a small charity of unsung heroes, who enable people with disabilities to live independently with the help of their dog. We can all see how much of a difference this makes to Deborah when we see her out and about in the village with Dillon.”

The more money we can raise, the more people with disabilities get the opportunity to benefit from both the physical and mental benefits of an Assistance Dog.”
