Facebook: Canine Partner for Sharon
Sharon is my best friend, she has brittle bones and is severely disabled. Sharon has an opportunity to be partnered with a dog from Canine Partners (Canine Partners) and in May last year went to an assessment day at the Canine Partners centre in Sussex. Canine Partners is a registered charity that transforms the lives of people with disabilities by partnering them with assistance dogs, these dogs offer companionship, security and practical help with everyday household tasks. To see some of the amazing things these dogs do please see our video and look up Canine Partners on Youtube.
The snag is that Canine Partners need Sharon to stay near by them for two weeks to assist with her dogs training and adjustment to her needs. This means paying for two weeks accomodation, food, a mobility vehicle hire and fuel to take Sharon and her driver.
Expenses have been worked out as follows:
Accomodation x 2 people for 14 days £700
Mobility vehicle hire £1,073 (Gowrings Mobility Hire)
TOTAL £2,262.50. This figure is the bare minimum required and if we raise more it gives wiggle room for unexpected expenses which inevitably arise.
