Allen was nominated by The Royal Naval Benevolent Trust and Hounds for Heroes charity chairman, Ian Tolfts. Allen who founded the charity Hounds for Heroes, has helped to raise over £1million to provide assistance dogs to injured servicemen and women.
Allen’s first dog Endal helped him recover from his traumatic injuries sustained whilst on operations in the Gulf. Endal passed onto the great kennel in the sky and Allen now enjoys the company of EJ (Endal Junior) to help him with his daily routines.
