Weʼve raised £765 to Develop a sensory garden for people and dogs at the new SPPOT Dog HQ in Haverfordwest.
- Haverfordwest, United Kingdom
- Funded on Sunday, 1st October 2017
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
SPPOT is a Community Interest Company that works with adults and young people who experience barriers to employment and education. It provides dog walking and day care services for all people but specialises in working with people who for reasons such as disability or ill health, can no longer walk their dog daily. It is a fact that if a person owns a dog, they are less likely to access health and social care services and suffer less with loneliness.
Last year you all gave fantastically so that SPPOT could purchase equipment for its volunteers to work with dogs in all weathers. A year has gone by and SPOTT has moved into its own building and now runs training for adults and children who experience barriers to education and employment. This enables them to become part of our dog walking team and more recently to volunteer in the dog day care service whilst obtaining a much needed qualification which they can use to gain employment.
We now want to improve the garden at SPPOT Dog HQ so that dogs can have a sensory experience whilst being cared for. Your donations will help us provide the start to the removal of a leylandii hedge, improved fencing and the purchasing of equipment and dog friendly plants.
SPPOT has provided valuable services to individuals over the last year and there have been positive outcomes for older, unwell and disabled people who have been able to continue to have their beloved dogs at home with them. The benefit to some of our volunteers who have had previous issues with mental health, has been that they have not had to be re-admitted to care due to having a purpose and value on a daily basis and people relying on them to manage their dogs .
