Christ­mas carol ser­vice aims for a £20,000

boost to char­ity for dis­abled peo­ple

It’s a Christ­mas carol ser­vice with a dif­fer­ence – and it’s all in a good cause that aims to help peo­ple strug­gling to cope with a range of dis­abil­i­ties.

The ser­vice takes place at 6.30pm on De­cem­ber 6 when The Lan­caster Pri­ory will be wel­com­ing some un­usual four­legged guests.

These dogs are part of the char­ity known as Ca­nine Part­ners, an or­gan­i­sa­tion which raises money to buy and train re­mark­ably tal­ented as­sis­tance dogs that make life so much eas­ier for dis­abled peo­ple.

It is be­ing or­gan­ised by char­ity sup­porter Sarah Cleaver, who said: ‘It is our am­bi­tion to fill the Pri­ory and to raise £20,000 which would fund the cost of a Ca­nine Part­ner from a puppy through to re­tire­ment when it’s 12 years old.

‘The puppy will be named Lan­caster af­ter the lo­cal sup­port should we reach our tar­get.

‘The dogs are trained to per­form more than 100 tasks

Around £20,000 is needed to sup­port a dog dur­ing its 12 year work­ing ca­reer
