Dog Aid charity says thankyou to Coronation Street Blog


Regular readers may remember that back in September last year I sold off some of my own personal Coronation Street memorabilia, for the charity Dog Aid (Assistance in Disability).  It's a charity that my friend Lynn is heavily involved with and she has an assistance dog who has been trained with the help of the charity.

The auction of my signed Corrie scripts and photographs raised a grand total of £53 and the charity have sent me a certificate which I thought I would share on the Blog.  (The certificate says I sold a Coronation Street sign, but it was actually signed scripts and photos that were sold).

My friend Lynn and her dog Bella - view their website here - will be at Crufts this year at the stall for the charity Dog Aid.  So if you're at Crufts, please go and say hello to them both!

Also, Dog Aid would very much appreciate your vote for them in the annual Crufts Friends for Life competition, run by the Kennel Club.  Watch the video here and find out how to vote here.  Read more about Lucy and her dog Molly here.  Lucy suffers from Ehlers- Danlos syndrome, a rare tissue disorder, which also affects Coronation Street actress Cherylee Houston, who plays Izzy Armstrong.


Dog Aid (Assistance In Disability) is a national voluntary organisation, Accredited by ADUK,ADEu,ADI, which provides specialised training for people with physical disabilities and their own pet dog.The main difference between Dog AID and many other assistance groups is that the disabled owner actually learns how to train their own dog. Generally all the training is carried out by the owner with supervision from a specially trained instructor.

Congratulations, Glenda! Thanks also for your MANY volunteer activities (this blog included) and encouragement of your readers to contribute to community support. I for one have learned from the blog of worthwile organisations to help out.
