Sponsor a Puppy Toby
Sponsor a Puppy Toby

Sponsor a Puppy Toby

When Toby went to live with his Volunteer Puppy Trainer, he was up with the birds! She tells us: “He soon settled in but did like to wake to the dawn chorus which got us up ‘nice and early’ for quite a while.” And now? “We get to ‘sleep in’ until he wakes up – at 6am. Then he spends the rest of the day sleeping! He sleeps in the home office most days.

He’s participated in many videoconferences with his snoring, which is the loudest I’ve ever heard. He loves to snooze in the sun. He particularly likes doorways for some reason. But he does make a point of climbing into his bed properly for his afternoon nap.” Wherever he lays his head, that’s his home! Do you think Toby might eventually learn to get up later and not sleep all day? Will his snoring get even louder? And which deaf person will Toby help to reconnect with life? Sponsor Toby today and find out!

What you get
  • For just £3 a month and you will receive a fantastic welcome pack, comprising a sponsorship certificate you can hang proudly on your wall and regular updates and pics.
  • When you donate £5 a month or more, you also get a cute, cuddly toy dog.

Sponsor a Puppy Sandie
Sponsor a Puppy Sandie

Sponsor a Puppy Sandie

Sandie is a hurricane. She always ‘helps’ with getting her food ready. Then she spins round with excitement because food’s coming her way. Then she dashes headlong into the kitchen, which is tiled, so she skids towards the bowl and… well, you can guess the rest. Sandie also has plenty of other cute puppy traits. She’s keen on collecting slippers.

She loves to stretch out in sunny, warm patches on the carpet. She enjoys saying hello to people on walks (and be told how beautiful she is). And she adores snuffling around in the garden. All together now: “Awwwww!”

Will Sandie ever perfect that skid into the kitchen, or will the food always go everywhere? How many slippers do you think she can collect in one day? What lies ahead in her training, so that one day she’ll help a deaf person to feel loved, not lonely? Sponsor Sandie today and find out!

What you get
  • For just £3 a month and you will receive a fantastic welcome pack, comprising a sponsorship certificate you can hang proudly on your wall and regular updates and pics.
  • When you donate £5 a month or more, you also get a cute, cuddly toy dog.

Why Buy Charity Gifts?

A no-waste gift

Sometimes when we buy a gift it is to show a small token of our love. Instead of giving a candle that may sit in the cupboard or a bottle of wine that will be gone in a day, why not purchase a charity gift in a friend or loved one’s name. By giving a charity gift you know the money you are spending is paying for something that will make an amazing difference and there is no waste.

Support great causes

Charity gifts are a great way to support good causes. You can help save lives by providing money for purchasing critical vaccines or help people by funding purchases of livestock. There are tons of charity gifts to choose from and all of them do something important for a community or individuals in need. Purchasing a charity gift will make you feel good about yourself because your money will be helping the people will who need it the most.

Great actual gifts

Most charity gifts come with goodies in return. When you purchase a charity gift not only does your money go towards helping those in need, but many charities provide goodies. Some charities will send you customisable cards, or they will send the recipient a gift card that lets them know you have purchased a charity gift on their behalf. If you are adopting an animal, some charities will even include a lovely cuddly toy and regular updates.
