Therapy Dogs Nationwide is looking for volunteers and their dogs to help in the Louth and Grimsby area.

Large or small, pedigree or crossbreed, any breed is welcome.

Here is a picture of one of the latest recruits, Maggie, helping to fulfil one of Christine’s wishes, to stroke and cuddle a German shepherd dog.

Therapy Dogs Nationwide met Christine through the Talk, Eat and Drink initiative, a social gathering for people over 50.
