Paul ran in the 2009 and 2010 London Marathons in aid of the children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent and the MS Society and until 2 weeks ago there were no plans at all to do it ever again. However after the family has worked for the last year as volunteer boarders for Guide Dogs UK he is going to give it one more go to try and raise as much money as possible for this great charity. 3 of the lovely dogs that we have looked after this year are in the pictures below and they are all now out working with new owners, Zeb,Angus and Fletch. Our latest trainee is Dave, is doing well and has just started his final 3 months of training.
