Our nominated charity for the day, Canine Partners, does a fantastic job providing and training dogs to help people with all sorts of disabilities. They help to transform the lives of people, enabling them to be more independent.

The dogs are trained specifically for the person they are going to help. For example, some dogs are taught how to recognise when someone is about to have an epileptic fit. They can then alert the person so that they can get to a safe place, and the dog will stay with them and comfort them until the fit is over. The dogs build a huge bond with the people they help and allow them to have a better quality of life.

We would like to thank our sponsors for donating prizes for the day:

Abbotsbury Childrens Farm
Delaware Veterinary Practice
Fleet Air Arm Museum
Forde Abbey Historic House & Gardens
Hestercombe Gardens
Kingston Mauward College
The Tank Museum
Yeovil Railway Centre
