MORE than £24,000 was raised by golfers at The Oxfordshire Golf Club near Thame to train and provide hearing dogs for the deaf.

The golf day, held earlier this month, saw BBC journalist Naga Munchetty help raise money for the charity Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.

Ms Munchetty said: “I’m very conscious of hearing loss since I spend so much time wearing an earpiece.

“I was delighted to be asked to support the charity golf day and completely fell in love with a gorgeous Cocker Spaniel who helped me tee off.

“Hearing dogs are trained to respond to important sounds and danger signals, and each dog helps to alleviate some of the isolation and loneliness that deafness so often brings.

“I hope that this event will raise funds to help Hearing Dogs train more clever little puppies to change the lives of deaf people across the UK.”

Club captain Rob Daniels said: “My wife and I have been volunteers for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People for many years and have seen the huge difference that these highly trained dogs make to their deaf recipients and I know the funds raised today will be put to good use by the charity.

“I’d like to thank everyone involved for making this day so successful.”
