March 9th 2017 – Hearing Dogs For The Deaf
Margo Henderson and Pebbles joined us for the evening to talk and demonstrate the work of hearing dogs. They both gave us a fascinating insight into how a deaf person’s world and life can be greatly improved by an amazing canine companion. This wonderful lady and her brilliant little dog were wonderful advocates for the Hearing Dog charity.
