Medical Detection Dogs benefit from extra cash

A Buckinghamshire charity has been given a £7,000 boost.

Buckinghamshire Building Society's charitable foundation which is administered by the Heart of Bucks, donates every year to a charity chosen by its members.

This year the Society's members chose Medical Detection Dogs.

Their Ambassador, Dr Geoffrey Farrer-Brown, was presented with a cheque for £7000 at the Society's AGM on Thursday 25th April.

Gerard O'Keeffe, CEO at Buckinghamshire Building Society, said:

"I am delighted that our members have voted for the funds from our charitable foundation to go to Medical Detection Dogs this year.

"The work they do is both fascinating and life-changing and provides a much needed support function for people with certain health problems, enabling them to have confidence as they go about their daily lives".

Dr Geoffrey Farrer Brown, MDD ambassador said:

"This money will be put to great use at the charity, helping to create more life saving Medical Alert Assistance Dogs for people living with complex, life threatening conditions."
