Chairman John Wheeley MBE

Trustee of Hounds for Heroes

John Wheeley MBE is a retired Lieutenant Colonel who served a full career as an officer in the Royal Engineers. On retirement he and his family moved to Clanfield where they met Alan and Endal. Frequent contact and evolving friendship resulted in them providing a home for Cluny, a black Labrador who, due to an injury sustained during puppy training, could no longer continue to be trained as an assistance dog and had to be re-homed. This turn of events led to their involvement with Allen in order to achieve his inspired vision of forming the Charity. He is also Honorary Secretary of The Queens Gurkha Engineers Association.
