We had a most excellent day when we went to visit Hearing Dogs for Deaf People at The Beatrice Wright Centre in York. At The Insurance Emporium, we’re so impressed with everything they do that we decided to venture over and present Hearing Dogs with a £4,000 donation to help support their fantastic hard work.

Who are Hearing Dogs?

This noble charity trains dogs to alert deaf people to sounds that they otherwise wouldn’t be aware of. These could include everyday noises such as a doorbell ringing, an alarm clock going off or a text message arriving. A hearing dog could also help with more serious sounds, such as that of a fire alarm or a crying baby.

How our donation will help

Our £4,000 donation to Hearing Dogs will go towards the cost of training the charity’s puppies, preparing them for the incredible and life-changing work that they’ll be doing. After being trained by the charity, when they’re ready, the dogs will move in with a deaf person. We’re pleased to donate to such a worthy cause and proud to be working with such an important charity!

Cheque this out

Once our team had presented the cheque, they were taken on a tour around The Beatrice Wright Centre. While on their adventures around the centre, they got to meet a number of the dogs that were training that day. It was an eye-opening experience that showed just how much work goes into training a puppy, preparing them to devote their lives to helping a future companion.

‘Great companionship’

Chief Executive Officer of The Insurance Emporium, Francis Martin, said: “As providers of pet insurance, The Insurance Emporium are proud to be supporting Hearing Dogs, thus helping deaf people reconnect with life. Hearing Dogs are known to increase independence and confidence and, like all dogs, also provide great companionship.

“The work done by Hearing Dogs is truly inspirational and life-changing for their recipients. These incredibly talented and highly-trained dogs have even been known to save their owners’ lives. We feel truly privileged to be involved with Hearing Dogs and their amazing dogs.”
