Nailsea Lions donates money to Hearing Dogs For Deaf People charity.


Nailsea Lions Club has donated £500 to a charity which supports people with hearing difficulties.

The generous group handed the money over to the Hearing Dogs For Deaf People.

Gordon Bennett from the 
Lions said: “A hearing dog can make a deaf person’s life much easier, more fulfilling and 

“Deafness not only affects a person’s hearing, but is also an invisible disability that isolates people from others, can strip them of their confidence and destroy their sense of independence.

“A big part of a hearing dog’s job is to alert their deaf recipient to sounds they would otherwise miss. Many of these sounds are simple sounds that people with normal hearing take for granted, such as a doorbell, a telephone or an alarm clock, or danger signals like a fire alarm. Being aware of these, thanks to a hearing dog, makes a big difference to deaf people’s lives and wellbeing.”
