A week long charity drive helped raise more than £200 for the training of hearing dogs.
Staff at Specsavers Hearing Centre, Orpington, welcomed hearing dogs to their store in a bid to raise money for the Hearing Dogs for Deaf People charity.
There was a bake sale and raffle in store, and visits from Tracy Williamson and hearing dog Goldie and Alva Lockett and hearing dog Kia.
Kiran Kaur, hearing aid audiologist at Specsavers Hearing Centre Orpington, said: “We, at the hearing centre, are delighted to have raised awareness and funds for this worthy charity, which supports people who are deaf and hard of hearing.
“We thoroughly enjoyed having the charity ambassadors in store during our fundraising drive, and the dogs were just wonderful. We’d like to say thank you to the charity and the community for their support- I think staff and customers alike learned how valued and vital these dogs are.”
