Carols in Lancaster Priory.
Scott & Wilkinson were delighted to sponsor charity Canine Partners and its North West Carol Service held on Thursday 6th December in the beautiful venue of Lancaster Priory.
This wonderful organisation trains assistance dogs to meet the needs of individuals with even the most complex physical disabilities. It currently helps adults aged 18 and over (both civilians and former service personnel) who have a physical disability or condition that affects their daily life and limits their independence.
Some of the disabilities and conditions they work with are:
- Multiple sclerosis
- Cerebral palsy
- Spinal injuries and head injuries
- Osteoarthritis and scoliosis
- Arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
- Ehlers-Danlos syndrome
- Friedrich’s ataxia
- Muscular dystrophy
- Spina bifida
- Osteogenesis imperfecta (brittle bones)
Canine Partners is also working in partnership with Help for Heroes, The Royal British Legion and other services organisations to provide assistance dogs for veterans and those wounded in service.
As Canine Partners receives no government funding, it relies solely on public donations to keep creating these life-transforming partnerships.
