When you walk, you help people like Joanna… 

Joanna Marshall 500x500

“Since having Marshall my life keeps getting better and better. His uniform indicates that I’m deaf and this gives me confidence. Whereas before, I would avoid talking to people, now I’m far less anxious about not understanding them so I no longer hide away in the shadows.”
– Joanna and Marshall

 

Please take part in the Great British Dog Walk and help more deaf people like Joanna to leave loneliness behind.
