he speaker at our October meeting was Elizabeth Muir from Medical Detection Dogs.
The charity was established in 2008 and is at the forefront of research into the diagnosis of cancer and in helping people with life-threatening diseases.
Bio-Detection Dogs are able to find the odour of diseases, such as cancer, in samples of urine and breath. Medical Alert Assistance Dogs detect changes in an individual’s personal odour and alert them or a carer to an impending event.
The dogs receive the highest standards of care – living in the homes of staff or volunteers where they are loved and cared for as part of the family.
Hilaria gave the vote of thanks and presented a cheque; the charity receives no government funding and we were please to be able to give a donation towards their work.
