Many Haddenham residents are familiar with the Saunderton-based charity, Hearing Dogs for Deaf People. This week, local Haddenham lady, Fiona Daniels, received the charity's Special Recognition Award 2012.
In recent months, Fiona carried on her volunteer duties despite facing her own battle with breast cancer, which required an operation and subsequent chemotherapy.
Fiona has volunteered in a number of key charity roles including helping puppies learn basic obedience in the role of puppy socialiser, acting as a brood bitch volunteer, as well as volunteering at many fundraising events across Buckinghamshire and beyond.
We offer our warmest congratulations to Fiona.
