Belinda's favourite charity
Once Belinda returned to work she could not look after a puppy full-time but occasionally looked after a Hearing Dog over weekends.
When she died she expressed a wish that her estate should ensure that her two dogs Franci and Kayleigh had a good life and that Hearing Dogs should also benefit - See the Samba Rehoming Kennel Block,
Belinda's family still actively supports Hearing Dogs
There are many local groups supporting Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, and these pictures show Franci competing in the veterans class in 2008 at Bricket Wood.
The Hertfordshire Branch hold their annual fun dog show here in September. For details see their web site. (Photographs by Rosemary Wenzerul)
