The Great British Dog Walk was launched in Parliament last week. David Cameron, MP for Witney, met up with his hearing dog namesake, Cameron, and his deaf recipient Richard. David Cameron and Cameron were first introduced in 2012 and were delighted to be reunited.
Mr Cameron said:
"Hearing Dogs for Deaf People do wonderful work with deaf people all over the UK every year. Their highly-trained dogs can truly transform the lives of people struggling with isolation, loneliness and communication issues brought about by deafness.
“I would encourage you all to join your local Great British Dog Walk event, get outside with friends and family at your nearest National Trust site to support the Charity in training more clever dogs to change lives."
Chief Executive of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, Michele Jennings said:
“It’s fantastic to be here in Westminster to spread the word of what we do and more specifically about our Great British Dog Walk events. The walks are starting this weekend, the first on Saturday at Gibside, Tyne and Wear and will conclude on 4 June when we will be back in London at Osterley Park“.
They are hosting 20 walks across the UK this year – find your nearest one here: www.greatbritishdogwalk.org
