We’re pleased to announce that the winner of our recent “Pet Pics” competition is Lucie
whose photo has just netted her owner, Jackie Charlton (of Brecon & Radnorshire Liberal Democrats) the Country Life Collection “Fine China Mug”, together with a 100g jar of Nescafe Gold Blend coffee.
Lucie is an amazing Hearing Dog for Deaf People and she needs to play as well as work. Her favourite pastime is digging, show her some sand and she digs to Australia!
I couldn’t do what I do without Lucie who helps me raise awareness of hearing loss and provides me with the confidence I need to be in a very public role. Deafness is very isolating, if you can’t hear you cannot engage. Lucie allows me to share that barrier when needed although I have a cochlear implant which provides a technological solution enabling me to interact in most situations.
Lucie also loves campaigning, knocking on doors and meeting people. She always brings a smile to everyone’s faces and without a doubt made sure I won in the recent County Council elections in Powys. The Lib Dems now run the administration and I think we can thank Lucie in some small part for that fantastic result.
