Whole Hog Challenge for Hearing Dogs
In Octobera team from The Hearing Care Centre recently tackled one of their toughest challenges to date, helping raise money for deafness charity - Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.
A dozen members of our staff completed the Whole Hog Challenge held at Wantisden Hall near Woodbridge and raised over £2,600! The course involved wading through ice cold swamp like water, running in thick mud, jumping over obstacles and climbing rope.
The money raised will help deliver specialist training for hearing dogs. Giving invaluable emotional support, hearing dogs gives many deaf people confidence, independence and constant companionship - which totally transform their lives.
Karen Finch (HCC Managing Director) said, “The support of our friends, family, colleagues and patients who generously donated, gave us the extra motivation needed for this testing challenge! The sense of pride, I felt watching every team member pass the finish line is indescribable! It was very tiring but we all thoroughly enjoyed it.”
Donations are still being taken and can be made using the Hearing Care Centre's Whole Hog Team Challenge fundraising page.
