Branch organiser Yvonne Reynoldson said “My mother started to lose her hearing in her twenties which led to her becoming withdrawn and depressed. Hearing Dogs can help restore the confidence that this invisible disability takes away. I wanted to make others aware of this and raise funds to train more of these dogs.”

Paws for Coffee co-ordinator and national events manager for the charity, Ruth Dunkin, said: “We’re extremely grateful to everyone who has hosted a Paws for Coffee on our behalf.
