HAMPSHIRE furry heroes have received a £1,000 donation.

The Pavers Foundation has donated £1,000 to Hampshire Search and Rescue Dogs following a grant application by Allison Roberts, Client Advisor at Pavers Port Solent.

Allison requested the fundraiser to help the charity which carries out essential work to rescue high-risk, vulnerable and missing people in the area, using highly trained search dogs.

She says: “[It] was a real revelation of the team’s time and skills.”

She added: “The Hampshire Search and Rescue Dogs are a very deserving charity and an exceptional team of highly trained dedicated volunteers providing vital support to the emergency services around the clock, helping to find and assist the vulnerable missing persons within our community.

“Thank you for allowing me to help such a fantastic charity.”

Bug Wrightson, chairman of Hampshire Search and Rescue Dogs, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have received a grant from the Pavers Foundation.

“This generous donation of £1,000 will help keep us running and saving lives. We thank the Pavers Foundation and all employees who support our vital and voluntary work in our community.”
