The Burton Latimer Dog Club is run on a voluntary basis and no trainers or committee members are paid for their services. Visiting Kennel Club examiners are paid a normal sum to cover their travelling expenses.
The club uses its surplus income to support animal charities and local community good causes and has made many donations over the years.
As a club we have recently sponsored a local charity that supports the deaf, the blind and the less able. We sponsored one of the members of the committee who works for the charity to complete a 52 mile walk within 24 hours. We are very proud to be able to support charities like this to help them to continue to offer support to the less able people.
Over the years we have also supported other charities such as Canine partners a charity that is based in Bedford, Leicester Animal Rescue, Equine Horse Assisted Therapy in Kettering and Guide Dogs for the Blind. We have made donations of Money and of goods depending on what the charity was best in need of.
