Sheffield Mutual Friendly Society, a local mutual provider of savings and investment policies for adults and children, is pleased to be sponsoring the Support Dogs 2017 Graduation Ceremony in Sheffield this weekend.
Sheffield Mutual has been in collaboration with Support Dogs for over four years, donating over £28,000 via various schemes and staff fundraising. Support Dogs is a national charity based in Sheffield who provide and train dogs to assist children with autism and adults with disabilities. They also train seizure alert dogs for people with epilepsy to provide a 100% reliable warning of up to 50 minutes prior to an oncoming seizure – essentially they are giving people their lives back.
Dawn Gregory, Business Development Manager at Sheffield Mutual said: “Working for a mutual is fantastic. It’s great to work for a Society that ‘gives back’ to the community and has its members’ best interests at heart. I have found the relationship with Support Dogs to be extremely rewarding and would encourage any company looking to support a charity in 2018 to consider them. The Graduation Ceremony celebrates the achievement of the Support Dog partnerships and also gives a chance for their supporters, sponsors and fundraisers to see first-hand the effect that their donations have had on people’s lives by hearing some of the partnership’s personal journeys. I always make sure to take a box of tissues and they are always needed! I’m also pleased to announce that Sheffield Mutual has pledged to continue its support in 2018 and hope to continue the collaboration for many years to come.”
Danny Anderson, Fundraising Manager at Support Dogs said: “Sheffield Mutual’s support for our work in improving the lives of those affected by autism, epilepsy and disability has been phenomenal. They are a company who really care about their community and put so much back into it. We are thrilled with our relationship with them and delighted that they are able sponsor our annual Graduation Ceremony.”
