Dog sponsored by Uckfield Lions is now fully trained

Rory, a dog sponsored by Uckfield Lions, is now fully qualified as a Canine Partner to assist people with physical disabilities.

He has been partnered with a woman called Elaine and the two of them have attended a two-week getting to know you course and are doing well together.

Elaine has said that although it’s very early days Rory has given her the confidence to live life to the full again.

Car rally

Uckfield Lions raised the funds towards Rory’s training through their annual Classic Car Rally. He started training last July when he was eight months old.

This year’s Classic Car Rally is due to be held on Sunday, September 29, from The Halfway House on the road to Lewes.

If you would like to take part entry forms are available from the Lions Book shop in Olives Yard.
