Join Dogs for Good as they celebrate Dogtober with their annual charity autumn fair. In its eighth year the fair will have a delightful variety of local and handmade items for sale. 20 stalls will offer visitors the chance to buy beautiful gifts, early Christmas presents and treats for themselves. Purchase items from handmade cushions and ceramics to jams, preserves to unique cards – there really is something for everyone.
Denise from the Banbury Supporters Group says “We have been holding charity fairs since 2009 and this will be the first one we hold at the Dogs for Good Training centre in Banbury, we have a great variety of stalls this year alongside traditional fair games, tombola and raffle”
Entrance to the fair is free and if you are interested in taking a stall please call Denise on 07491 658970. Please note that pet dogs are not allowed at this event.
Money raised will go towards Dogs for Good. Dogs for Good makes life changing differences for people with disabilities. The charity’s assistance dogs support adults and children with a range of disabilities and children with autism and the charity also trains activity and therapy dogs to work with specialist handlers in communities and schools helping adults with autism, people with learning disabilities amongst others. Its Family Dog team gives specialist training advice and support to help families of a child with autism to leverage support from their pet dog .
Many people Dogs for Good works to support find that by developing a special bond with a trained dog they are able to overcome challenges, build confidence and consider new opportunities such as starting a new job or going to college and playing a more active role in their community. Partnership with a dog also helps to reduce social isolation and bring families closer together.
