Clevedon Lions Club handing money to Hearing Dogs For Deaf Children.


Hundreds of pounds have been donated to help train hearing dogs.

The Clevedon Lions Club presented a £300 cheque at a convention for all clubs in the South West.

The donation is part of the 
regional project to provide specially trained dogs for severely deaf children.

The dogs are trained to alert their owners to door bells, telephones and alarms as well as being a friend to the child in which is a lonely and quiet world.

The dogs often sleep in the same room to take away the child’s fear of the dark and parents can ask the dog to tell them when food is ready.

The presentation is the latest donation the Lions club has made from the money it raised through its Santa float.

The money goes into a pot to form the Dream Scheme project where the club aims to support and help other charities and local groups towards a fundraising goal.
