East Midlands offers £1,000 donation to Hearing Dogs for Deaf People

28 November 2022

A charity which trains dogs to provide support for deaf people has received a boost to its fundraising efforts from East Midlands region.

The Peterborough branch of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People has received a £1,000 donation from East Midlands.

The charity, which was established in 1982, trains clever dogs to alert deaf people to important and lifesaving sounds they would otherwise miss such as the smoke alarm, alarm clock and even a baby's cry. Being aware of these – thanks to a hearing dog – makes a real difference to deaf people’s lives and can even save them. 

Gill Yeates at Hearing Dogs for Deaf People said: “We are very grateful to Persimmon Homes for this donation which will help fund the equipment needed to train our puppy recruits here in Peterborough.”

Michelle Jeffrey, Land Director at East Midlands said: “We are delighted to have been able to support the excellent work Hearing Dogs for Deaf People does locally which provides a lifeline to deaf people. We were also very pleased to meet Kathryn and Rocky at our Peterborough office.”
