Disability assistance dog Baby couldn’t wait to test drive Support Dogs’ new car, generously donated by Burrows’ Business Centre in Barnsley.
The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is one of several canines trained by the Sheffield-based charity Support Dogs, enabling their owners to lead safer, more independent lives.
The charity relies entirely on donations and sponsorship to fund its three training programmes for assistance dogs to support children with autism and adults with epilepsy and physical disability.
Burrows have been sponsoring Support Dogs for the past two years and have now donated a brand new Toyota Aygo to the charity, whose national training centre is in Brightside.
Sarah Cooper, Burrows’ Business Centre manager, said: “Burrows are delighted to be involved with Support Dogs. As a local company we choose to work with our local communities and local charities, and having seen the incredible work done by Support Dogs and how they change lives for the better we are proud to continue working together for a better future.”
Danny Anderson, fundraising manager for Support Dogs, said: “We’re hugely grateful to Burrows for their extremely generous support over the past two years. Without the sponsorship from local firms, we couldn’t continue to provide and train all our amazing dogs who can transform people’s lives.”
