Here at The Insurance Emporium, we are incredibly happy to be support a number of charities, one of which is Dogs for Good. On Saturday 16th June we travelled to Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire, the location for the 2018 Dogs for Good Fun Day! As the proud sponsors of the event, we were incredibly excited to be able to play a part in this fantastic occasion to help raise awareness of the brilliant work that Dogs for Good do and also celebrate their 30th anniversary! Check out our review of the day!
Who are Dogs for Good?
Dogs for Good is a charity that specialises in providing assistance dogs for vulnerable people. Their dogs help to support adults and children with a range of disabilities, as well as children with autism. They also train dogs and handlers to work in the community, helping out in schools amongst other places. At The Insurance Emporium, we’re proud supporters of Dogs for Good and try to help create awareness of their work wherever we can. We are very proud to support a charity who do so much to help vulnerable people lead more independent lives.
Fun in the sun!
The event in Warwickshire was designed to celebrate the ‘extra special bond that we have with our four-legged friends’ and was free for all the family (including dogs!). There were all sorts of activities to enjoy on the day, with demonstrations from the Dogs for Good team, crafts and face painting for the kids and a Sportzone with disability sports on offer. The whole idea behind the event was to raise awareness for the charity, bring together dog lovers and thank the charity’s supporters, as well as have a great time celebrating the last 30 years! As an added bonus, the sun even came out!
Flyball and fly-bys…
Our team down at the Fun Day were blown away by the RAF flypast that took place! The sight of a huge Douglas C-47 Dakota plane, part of the Battle of Britain Memorial flight, soaring over the event was certainly a high point for everyone in attendance and really took the spectators’ breath away! On the ground, the flyball demonstrations were another hit. Not only were people able to marvel at some skilful pups but visitors also got to test their own dogs out in the ring and get a taste of the action! The real highlight of the event for us was seeing how many people attended and the great time that visitors and their canine pals had on the day!
What did we get up to?
As well as sponsoring the event, we also had a stand at the fun day. This provided us with a fantastic opportunity to meet people and also help our customers put a face to our name! We really enjoyed chatting with some of our recipients and customers, helping them out with any insurance queries. Most of all, it was great fun meeting so many of the fantastic pooches that we insure here at The Insurance Emporium! Overall, we were thrilled that we were able to play our part in raising awareness of Dogs for Good and celebrate their 30 years of fantastic work! Here’s to plenty more opportunities to celebrate!
We are very proud to support Dogs for Good at The Insurance Emporium and think that the work they do to help those in need is wonderful, their dogs really are superstars!
