A CHARITY is launching a new ‘puppy socialising’ scheme to help transform the lives of deaf people.

Hearing Dogs for Deaf People is appealing for volunteers in Fareham to help to train puppies.

Tony Lewry has been volunteer for four years and he said: ‘Volunteering is so rewarding and it can be a roller coaster of emotions but I wouldn’t change a thing.’

Volunteering Manager at the charity Victoria Leedham said: ‘We are delighted to be launching our puppy socialising scheme.

‘The new project will enable the charity to train more puppies to change the lives of deaf people.’
