Freddie’s charity appeal

In the course of my work I come across many assistance dogs which help visually or hearing impaired or otherwise disabled clients. They all do a wonderful job and make the difference between living a fulfilled life and just existing.

A local charity based in Sittingbourne, called Tree of Hope, trains and supplies dogs to help people suffering from autism and sensory issues cope with life.

It costs around £10,000 to train and supply each dog – the whole process takes up to a year.

I know a family who have been approved for a dog, which is in training, for their young son, Freddie. As well as autism Freddie has an acute sensory problem where even to put clothes on causes him physical pain.

If you would like to help the charity please follow the link to the Tree of Hope giving page.
