Guest Speaker Mandy with her Dog, Baloo at Club Night on 27th March

Tracey had arranged for our Guest Speaker this month to bring along her dog and gave us a very touching story regarding Baloo.

Baloo is a Belgian Malinois who was tragically injured whilst deployed with Essex Police in 2018. Her injuries were severe and she lost a leg and had extensive metalwork in her pelvis.

Unable to return to her previous career Baloo was adopted by a retired Metropolitan Police Dog Handler and began her new role of spreading smiles and showing that you can overcome adversity with the right support.

The Team Baloo Fund was set up in 2020 to support the work that Baloo now does, visiting schools, community projects, and organisations with Mandy by her side to share her story and offer hope and comfort to others.

Baloo stole the show and had plenty of attention from the group.
