Boys Volunteer for Hearing Dogs Charity
After Hearing Dogs for Deaf People visited Stamford School last week, three boys spent their Saturday morning volunteering for the charity on Stamford high street. Hearing Dogs for Deaf People is a national charity and centre of excellence in training dogs to alert deaf people to important sounds and danger signals in the home, work place and public buildings.
Douglas Douglas and Nick Beresford (both Y11) helped collect funds from customers at Barclays Bank and Rory Russell donated cakes for the charity to sell. A total of £860 was raised which will be matched by the bank. It can cost as little as £3 a month to sponsor a Hearing Dog for the Deaf, so these funds will go a long way.
Helen Chew, Charity Co-ordinator at Stamford School, said: “Many thanks to the students for giving up their time this weekend, your help was greatly appreciated.”
