Sheffield charity gets its paws on taxi firm’s support

Have your say

An organisation which trains dogs to help disabled people is in the fast lane to charity success - after taxi firm Mercury chose to support it this year.

The cab firm has selected Support Dogs as one of its three major charities of the year alongside St Luke’s Hospice and the Sheffield Royal Society for the Blind.

Dermot Griffiths, general manager of Mercury Taxis, is pictured above welcoming the first pup of the year - an eight-week-old Golden Retriever fittingly named Mercury - to Support Dogs’ training centre in Brightside.

“My daughter was born with multiple disabilities and developed epilepsy, so I know the impact the condition has,” he said.
