Members of the Women’s Institute learned more about Dogs for Good.

Marie Carden and her dog Blue from Dogs for Good, formally Dogs for the Disabled, spoke to members of the Isle of Ely Federation meeting on October 27.

Marie had been left severely disabled after an operation went wrong but her life has been changed by Blue, who is her second dog.

She outlined the process of getting one of the specially trained dogs, which are trained from eight-weeks-old and help their owners to live as independently as possible.

Other speakers at the meeting were Prue Leith, a Great British menu judge and now a novelist, along with Pippa Scrimshaw from Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS, on medicines management.
