Mr Pasquale said: “Hypo Hounds is doing fantastic work in the Kent community, training dogs to save the lives of people living with diabetes. When I was asked to be an ambassador and help raise awareness of both diabetes and Hypo Hounds I was truly touched and honoured.”
Hypo Hounds chief executive Jane Pearman said: ” We are so pleased that Joe has chosen to come on board and support our work. We are so proud of what we have achieved since we launched our charity in May this year.”
Hypo Hounds is currently working with five dogs who are all regularly alerting their owners if they detect a dangerous rise or fall in their blood sugars. “This means Hypo Hounds dogs have saved five lives already,” says Mrs Pearman.
Hypo Hounds has been supported by the Paula Carr Diabetes Trust since its launch. Trustee Ros Debling, who herself has Type 1 diabetes, said: “Everyone at the Paula Carr Diabetes Trust is one hundred percent behind Hypo Hounds. I have seen for myself how these dog alert their owners to changes in their blood sugars. They truly are life savers.”
