OUR HIRERS


CANINE PARTNERS

is a registered charity that assists people with physical disabilities to enjoy a greater independence and quality of life through the provision of specially trained dogs. Over the past 27 years the charity has provided more than 680 trained dogs to help disabled people.

More than 1.2 million people in the UK use a wheelchair, and a significant number of those would benefit from a canine partner. The dogs are trained to help with everyday tasks such as opening and shutting doors, unloading the washing machine, picking up dropped items, pressing buttons and switches and getting help in an emergency. The charity aims to train dogs to meet the needs of people with even the most complex disabilities, including members of HM Armed Forces. Canine Partners is working closely with the Forces charity Help for Heroes, which has funded several partnerships of injured ex-servicemen and women.

These life transforming dogs also provide psychological and social benefits including increased independence, confidence and self-esteem. A canine partner also brings companionship, a sense of security and increases social interaction.

Here at the Darby & Joan hall we hold monthly classes for the training of our puppies, under the tuition of our local trainer Jemma, these puppies will become Canine Partners of the future assisting people with physical disabilities.

Canine Partners receives no government funding and relies solely on public donations. For further information please visit caninepartners.org.uk or contact Natalie Smith.

COTTINGHAM LITTLE THEATRE

Flowchart: Decision: CLT

Cottingham Little Theatre is a very friendly drama group based in Cottingham. We’ve been around for nearly a century (we started out in 1920) and in that time we’ve put on hundreds of shows – comedies, thrillers, dramas and even the odd musical!

We’ve got a very loyal following in Cottingham and the surrounding area – although some of our audience come from much further afield – and we are proud of our reputation for delivering professional performances and an excellent night out.
