Masonic Lodges in the neighbouring areas have united to cover the cost of training a dog over two years, with the puppy they sponsor due to be named Mason in honour of their fundraising efforts.
Support Dogs is a national charity whose training centre is in Brightside, which trains assistance dogs for people with autism, epilepsy and physical disability, enabling them to lead safer, more independent lives.
“In common with all national charities Support Dogs suffered a reduction in fundraising during the Covid pandemic so this week’s latest donation from the Masons is a welcome boost,” said Support Dogs’ fundraising manager Danny Anderson.
Support Dogs will receive a new intake of puppies in April or May, when Mason can hopefully be revealed.
