Dogs Trust

Eamonn and Ruth are proud to be patrons of the charity Dogs Trust, to support the continuing work of the Dogs Trust team.

"Dogs Trust has made such a difference to not only my life but also Ruth and Jack's," Eamonn explained.

"After meeting Maggie we knew we had to take her home with us and we've never looked back. I couldn't imagine our home without her and Dogs Trust is providing similar happy endings each and every day for the thousands of dogs that they care for and rehome.

"Ruth and I are delighted to be Patrons of such a worthwhile cause and urge people to think rescue if they're thinking of adding a four-legged friend to their family, and remember 'A Dog is for Life not Just for Christmas'."

Dogs of all shapes and sizes find themselves at Dogs Trust, many through no fault of their own, and last year Maggie was just one of the 16,000 dogs that were rehomed.

Dementia Friends

Eamonn and Ruth are really proud to be supporting the Dementia Friends campaign.

People with dementia get by with a little help from their friends. And anybody can become a Dementia Friend. It's just about understanding a bit more about dementia and the small things you can do to help people with the condition.

People with dementia want to carry on going about their daily lives and feeling included in their local community, but they sometimes need a helping hand to do so. Dementia Friends learn a little bit about what it's like to live with dementia and turns that understanding into action. This could be helping someone find the right bus or being patient in a till queue if someone with dementia is taking longer to pay. Every action counts.

Being a Dementia Friend isn't about volunteering or fundraising (though you can do that too if you want).

To become a friend you just need to watch our short video or join an information session in your area.
