A SEATON ROSS knitting group has raised over £160 for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People by ‘stitching and bitching’ their way through the year.
The women spent the last eight months eagerly knitting away in support of the charity at their Seaton Ross ‘Stitch and Bitch’ sessions.
Together they produced a fabulous multi-coloured blanket to raffle off to raise funds to help Hearing Dogs for Deaf People train more dogs for deaf people.
They raised a total of £167 which was presented to the charity on their recent visit to the Beatrice Wright Centre in Bielby.
A spokeswoman for Hearing Dogs thanked the group and said: “Hearing Dogs receives no government funding and relies on the generosity of individuals, groups and businesses in the community to continue its important work.
“Could your group or business support Hearing Dogs as their Charity of the Year?”
The public are welcome to visit the training centre in Bielby by booking a Thursday Tour which gives visitors the chance to find out more about the charity and to see a live demo of Hearing Dogs at work.
The tour also includes a visit to the kennels and delicious homemade cakes.
Hearing Dogs also has a number of volunteer speakers across the area who would love the chance to come to speak to local groups, clubs or associations about the work of Hearing Dogs.
