Hearing Dogs for Deaf People was founded at Crufts in 1982 and today helps thousands of deaf people across the UK. Hearing dogs make a massive difference in deaf people’s lives. Not only do they alert their owners to sounds they would otherwise miss, they also provide a new sense of independence and confidence.
Steve and Hollie Wright put themselves forward as Puppy Socialisers, and in June 2017 welcomed Otto to the Instant Home Family.
Otto is a Show Cocker Spaniel and is the newest addition to the Instant Home office. Over the next 12 months Otto will attend regular training sessions before being matched with his lifelong companion. There are so many ways you are able to support this worthy cause (without homing and socialising a puppy for 12 months!), please visit the website for more information. www.hearingdogs.org.uk

On the 16th July 2017 the female members of the Instant Home team, Sue Hubbard, Hollie Wright and Becky Pryor will be taking part in the Cambridge 5k Race for Life raising money for Cancer Research UK.
The statistics are beyond worrying: Every two minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer. Events like Race for Life help Cancer Research continue their ground-breaking work, finding new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, as they receive no government funding for their research.
Any donations would be greatly appreciated, fundraise.cancerresearchuk.org/team/instant-home-limited
