A charity providing service dogs to the disabled has been given a £1,600 by a charitable trust to buy two new puppies.

The F&PC Scotto Trust donated the money to North Kesteven District Council chairman’s chosen charity Canine Partners.

Canine Partners were suggested for consideration of the F&PC Scotto Charitable Trust after trustee David Harrison became aware of them through Coun Ogden’s Civic Service in the summer.

His wife Coun Julia Harrison was elected to the council for the Kirkby la Thorpe and South Kyme Ward in May.

Chairman Coun Gill Ogden said: “We are extremely grateful for the continued support David has given us through the F&PC Scotto Trust. With £1,600, Canine Partners will be able to purchase two new puppies, who will then be trained to go on to help someone in need in the future.”

The F&PC Scotto Trust was formed by Frank and Phyllis Scotto who originated in the North East of England. Having no children to carry on their legacy, they decided to form a charitable trust in 1979 to carry on their name.

The Scottos invited David to be a trustee in 1983. He has been introduced to dozens of good causes and has been able to support those worthy of charitable donations to the tune of in excess of £300,000 over the last two years in the North East area alone.

Events supporting the Chairman’s Charities will run again in the New Year.
