ASSISTANCE dog charity Canine Partners has been chosen by 18 branches of Wilko as its Charity of the Year.
Canine Partners was chosen by team members from Wilko stores in Region 17 across Hampshire, Surrey, Berkshire and West Sussex.
Wilko team members will be taking on a range of fundraisers throughout the year.
Anne Yendell, director of fundraising at Canine Partners, said: ‘We are delighted to work in partnership with Wilko as we do not receive any government funding and rely solely on donations. Their support and commitment to fundraising for us will enable us to create more partnership, transforming even more lives.’
All funds raised will help Canine Partners to train more assistance dogs and transform the lives of people with disabilities, including wounded servicemen and women.
