M&S staff go barking mad for Support Dogs

Staff at Marks & Spencer in Kingsway, Derby, have been going barking mad for Support Dogs as they helped raise awareness of the national charity’s urgent need for more dogs.

Support Dogs, which is currently the store’s charity of the year, provide and train assistance dogs for adults and children with autism, epilepsy and physical disability.

Tenth anniversary of the flood that almost sunk Support Dogs

It’s exactly ten years since Support Dogs was almost forced to close due to the devastating effects of the Sheffield Flood.

On June 25 2007 Sheffield was devastated by the biggest flood in living memory. Two people drowned, and workers in Brightside, where Support Dogs is based, had to be airlifted to safety.

Because of Support Dogs’ training centre’s position in Brightside right next to the River Don it was particularly badly affected.

Thanks for 25 years of supporting Support Dogs!

The great and the good of Sheffield packed into the city’s Crucible Theatre for a special corporate showcase to mark Support Dogs’ 25th anniversary.

More than 100 corporate sponsors and guests, plus the Lord Mayor, the Master and Mistress Cutler, and the charity’s newest patrons the Earl and Countess of Scarbrough, joined a number of Support Dogs’ clients with their dogs, staff and volunteers.

Pounds for Pups’ campaign inspires hotel to donate to Support Dogs

A campaign by the Star newspaper  in aid of Sheffield charity Support Dogs has inspired the Hilton Hotel in the city to donate £1,450 to the cause.

The Sheffield Star’s two-month Pounds for Pups’ campaign aims  to raise awareness and cash for Support Dogs, which trains assistance dogs for adults and children with autism, epilepsy and physical disabilities.

After a successful 1st year, the Sheffield 10k is back on 24th September 2017!

This run takes in all the sites of the ‘Steel City’ – home of the Support Dogs training centre – along rivers and, occasionally, up hills.
