Lancaster takes the lead for dog charity
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
