Puppy love boosts char­ity’s funds

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

MEET Darcy and Daisy, Ash­ford’s own pair of Guide Dog pup­pies. They are in train­ing but also help­ing to boost funds for the char­ity. Shop­pers at two of the town’s su­per­mar­kets were ex­tra gen­er­ous when the pups re­ported for duty for Guide Dogs for the Blind fund-rais­ing stints, and helped col­lect £1,362. First Sains­bury’s and then ASDA al­lowed sup­port­ers of the char­ity, in­clud­ing guide dog own­ers, to set up ta­bles in their foy­ers and the cash flowed in when shop­pers were ap­proached by the pair with waggy tails and doggy grins. Col­lec­tion or­gan­iser Stephen Fryer said: “The need for guide dogs is in­creas­ing ev­ery year and we get no gov­ern­ment grants so we are very grate­ful.”

Any­one will­ing to help can ring Mr Fryer on 01233 611650.
