Happy Puppy started life as a way to make money.
Not for us, but for our clients at http://www.cumbrialivingroom.co.uk where we offered Independent Living Skills to people with learning disabilities. Starting with cards and simple crafts, ourselves and our clients made and sold at craft fairs, fetes and local events. This raised enough money to support trips in the Lake District, Edinburgh and the theatre with the popularity and quality of our products soon starting to eclipse our original mission.
Happy Puppy is now a business in its own right with profits being fed back to provide craft opportunities and therapy on an individual basis or as part of wider Social Services and community groups.
We Design, We Make, We Sell.
