Norah Beare

Volunteer

Norah Beare volunteers with her Chihuahua at an Age NI Day Centre.

'I love volunteering with Poppy, my gentle, playful and affectionate Chihuahua. I bring her on regular visits to an Age NI day centre.'

'Poppy loves meeting new people and will take every opportunity to have a cuddle. She brings joy everywhere she goes and brightens up the faces of everyone she meets.'

'I’ve experienced first hand how interacting with pets can make a real difference in someone’s life. I recall a time with a very quiet and withdrawn older lady who suddenly put out her hand to stroke Poppy on her lap. It was a touching moment of tenderness and connection that I will never forget.'
