Our week on television!
This week we have had two major television appearances - in very different programmes - which has given us an opportunity to talk about and demonstrate our work to a wider audience.
Canine Partners needs to raise £3.1million to build a second Training Centre in order to train more dogs and change more lives.
We have purchased a site in a village called Osgathorpe, halfway between Ashby-de-la-Zouch and Loughborough, which has a range of barns, outbuildings and associated land. The plan is to replace the barns and adapt some of the outbuildings to create the specialised buildings we need.
Having a Midlands Training Centre will not only increase our output, it will also make the charity far more accessible for those on our waiting list who are unable to make the long journey to our centre in West Sussex. 42% of the applications we received last year were from people living in the mid and northern regions of the UK. Many of our existing partnerships will also benefit from being able to receive support from the new centre.
The site will consist of a training centre and office facilities, fully accessible accommodation and kennelling.
This is an extremely exciting time for Canine Partners and we would be delighted to receive your support.
For more information about this project, please contact Cat Harvey on 01730 716018 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jobs available at the new centre will be advertised on our Vacancies page here: Work for us
