Bramhall Businesses support Hearing Dogs Charity

18 Oct 2015

Local Cheshire resident Richard Carr and his faithful hearing dog Cameron have raised thousands of pounds for national charity Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.

Bramhall businesses have sponsored Cameron’s Great British Dog walk and they are thankful to the following for their support – Mounteney Solicitors, Sainsburys, Snapes Letting Agents, Butcher and Barlow, NJT Solicitor and  Scope Charity

Cameron is a specially trained hearing dog who helps his deaf partner Richard, 50, with daily life. He helps Richard maintain his confidence and independence by alerting him to everyday sounds like the doorbell, cooker timer, alarm clock and danger sounds like the smoke and burglar alarms.

The pair who live in Cheshire, walked more than 75,000 miles together as part of the Great British Dog Walk and have raised over £5,00 for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.

Richard who has been deaf since birth, said: ‘Cameron has helped me so much – he alerts me to sounds, but is also the best companion’.
