By Callam Banghard

Therapy dogs were brought into a student accommodation block at DMU to help students dealing with exam stress.

Two dogs named Poppy and Nellie were bought in yesterday(THURS,MAY10) by volunteers from the charity Pets As Therapy for students to have a calm and relaxing session to ease their stress during exam season.

The event took place at 3pm in the Liberty Park student accommodation common room.

The volunteers spoke a bit about the charity and said: “The charity has been active for around 40 years with 9th May marking 40 years for the charity.”

Donations were also made by students to help support the charity and the therapy dogs.

There is also another event scheduled for Tuesday, May 23, at 2pm in the Liberty Park common room, at 101 Raw Dykes Road.

Students will be able to make donations at the reception desk in an envelope if they wish to donate.

The charity aims to raise £500 for the guide dogs, that will be coming in on that respective day.
