Tracy, Joanne and Marley (pictured above) spent the day at Braehead shopping centre. Providing information to the public about our charity. Marley got to interact with members of the public as she is a trained Therapy dog. The staff were kind and helpful. A special mention to the security guard who kept checking in with us through out the day. It was also fantastic to see some familar faces stop by for a visit!
Thank you so much to Braehead for having us!
We have had a couple of Childminder groups in on Friday mornings. We set up toys, arts and crafts and provided a few of our Therapy dogs to interact with the children.
We recieved these lovely cards from the children as well as donations.
The children were fantastic and we hope to see you again in the future!
Joanne, Megan and some of our young trainers had a lovely day in the Kingsgate with our information stall. They were interacting with members of the public, giving help and advice and telling everyone what our charity provides. The Kingsgate staff were lovely and very helpful throughout the day. Thank you so much for having us!
