Kildare (a venue favoured by many of our Volunteers) for the warm and generous welcome extended to us at our Awareness Days held there this weekend. We appreciate the sponsorship and the promotion given by Gerry to Irish Therapy Dogs. The event was very successful and we acknowledge the interest shown by their customers in the services we provide to Care Centres and Schools. With the very positive reaction we received today we are very hopeful that in the future, we will welcome back some of Gerry’s customers as Volunteer Visiting Teams.
