A great day out for all the family!

When you walk, you help people like Jocelyne… 

Jocelyn Kennedy 600x500.jpg

My hearing dog Kennedy does so much more than alert me to sounds. He gives me great confidence and independence, not only at home but also out and about, and he brings me so much happiness. He truly is a life-changer!
