Canine Partners Christmas Stamp Appeal
Canine Partners has launched its annual Christmas Stamp Appeal in a bid to collect as many stamps as possible from festive postbags. Canine Partners Julie Graham, who co-ordinates the Stamp Appeal, explained: “Helping us couldn’t be easier. Just tear off the stamp and share it with us. With the help of a stamp dealer we are able to convert unwanted used stamps into cash. We don’t receive Government funding so this invaluable to us. “With the money raised we are able to help Pat the puppy through his training. We have already raised more than £4000 from the kindness of people who have sent us the stamps that drop through their door each day.

I mentioned on Tuesday that the team were heading out far and wide across the UK – David and Ronnie were enjoying working with our West and East Scotland satellites, while Jill was with our Stirling correspondent, Dale, who is based in our office on the campus of the University. There was a degree of concern in the camp when we could all see the way the weather forecast was panning out. In the event, everyone managed to travel back safe Read More
Canine Partners’ Leicestershire Training Centre
Canine Partners needs to raise £3.1million to build a second Training Centre in order to train more dogs and change more lives.
We have purchased a site in a village called Osgathorpe, halfway between Ashby-de-la-Zouch and Loughborough, which has a range of barns, outbuildings and associated land. The plan is to replace the barns and adapt some of the outbuildings to create the specialised buildings we need.
Having a Midlands Training Centre will not only increase our output, it will also make the charity far more accessible for those on our waiting list who are unable to make the long journey to our centre in West Sussex. 42% of the applications we received last year were from people living in the mid and northern regions of the UK. Many of our existing partnerships will also benefit from being able to receive support from the new centre.
The site will consist of a training centre and office facilities, fully accessible accommodation and kennelling.
This is an extremely exciting time for Canine Partners and we would be delighted to receive your support.
