We Support

Riley - Hearing Dog in Training.

Riley has now passed his One Star Award. This means he has mastered the basic cues and knows how to play nicely with both humans and furry pals. Clever Riley is now working hard towards his Two Star where he is learning how to walk well on the lead and come running back when called.

Elliott is a source of great pride and came 13th at Oulton Park circuit. Thruxton next. Come On!

Thank You James McGuigan for inviting us to a brilliant day in memory of Gary Speed, Daniel Yorath and Elliott Bransby, with funds raised for Andy Mans Club, Leeds (talking groups for men), and The Disabilty Trust (helping people live independent lives) Congratulations to Team Speed and Team Yorath. We all had an Amazing Day.

Proud to live and work in Wakefield.

Over 70% of the Wakefield District is rural. The wonderful Waterton Park (below) is five minutes from our clinic. Along with other beautiful places like Ryhill Nature Reserve, Walton Nature Park, Newmillerdam, Nostell Priory and Pugneys Water Park, to name a few. If you prefer the City Centre you can be on Trinity Walk gazing at the amazing Wakefield Cathedral in around fifteen minutes.

Festival Season

With numerous festivals happening across the country every Summer, it’s good to think about how best to protect yourself (and loved ones) from tinnitus - namely if you're heading out to a live event where it's likely to be loud.

Starkey Cares

Well Done Starkey - Amazing Work.
'At Starkey, caring is our core value and we are delighted to show our caring support at this week’s Special Olympics in Berlin. 83% of the 30,000 Special Olympians who have difficult hearing have not had a hearing test. Starkey Partnership will change that and give the gift of hearing to these wonderful athletes'.

Tympanometry Training

Thank You Guys for the Amazing Training Day.


Happy to sponsor Leggit-For-Library Walton Village Fun Run on 8th May, to raise funds for this valuable resource. You can visit the Library at Charles Waterton House WF2 6UA .

Elliott is a Sandal lad with huge ambitions to race. At only fourteen years old he has amazing potential and steely determination- he lives and breathes racing. Thompson and Son are delighted to help him along his way and with his car already wrapped in our company colours, his 'matching' race suit is currently in progress. Watch this space as we update his progress on this page.


'Thompson and Son are proud to support King and Jade and animals in need of a helping hand'.


King sustained severe burns at the hands of his owner, and required urgent skin grafts and treatment. Thompson and Son were delighted to step in and pay for his treatments. He is now happily re-homed and looks amazing. Well done King for being so brave.


Jade needed treatment for skin problems. Thompson and Son were happy to help her and delighted to see her looking comfortable, happy and enjoying life. If you would like to donate to RSPCA go to
