It doesn’t get better than the Isle of Wight does it? All that sunshine and the smell of salty brine and fish as the ferry gently chugs across the inviting blue sea, its flag rustling in the warm breeze. And that’s pretty much what it was like on Wednesday when I visited our army of volunteer puppy parents as they met for their weekly puppy class in Godshill Scout Hall. All of the above applied, plus a choc chip cookie on the voyage over, just to put the icing on the cake.

Canine Partners value and rely on the generosity of our supporters
We do not receive government funding and so your donation is vital to helping us plan for the future and train more dogs for more people with disabilities.
You can increase your donation at no extra cost
If you are a tax payer, your gift, and any you make in the future, will be worth almost one third more - at no extra cost to you - if you sign the Gift Aid declaration when you make a donation. This can apply to existing support too, as it can also be backdated for up to 6 years prior to the date of the declaration provided the donation was made since 6 April 2000; Gift Aid Declaration form.

Ways to Donate:
Give as You Earn is a scheme that enables employees to donate to any UK charity straight from their gross salary (before tax is deducted) meaning that you receive immediate tax relief. This means that a monthly donation of £10 straight out of your payroll, actually only costs you £8! (Even less if you are in the higher tax bracket).
Help give a gift of independence:
- £5 a month (£4 from you, £1 from the tax man) would help support an “Adopt a Puppy” recruit through training.
- £10 a month could pay for a set of dog grooming equipment
- £30 a month could help give continued support to an established Partnership, with our 24 hour helpline and regular aftercare visits
What you should do: Simply ask your Payroll Department if they already operate a Give as You Earn scheme and, if so, how you sign up.
