SARAH the guide dog en­cour­aged shop­pers to dig deep in their pock­ets when she took part in a fundrais­ing day at County Square, Ash­ford. The col­lec­tion day saw vis­i­tors met by guide dogs, rang­ing from small pup­pies with their puppy walk­ers to work­ing dogs with their blind own­ers. Ash­ford Guide Dogs branch or­gan­iser Stephen Fryer said: “It was lovely for the dogs to meet so many friendly peo­ple. “Not only did shop­pers and staff dig deep, do­nat­ing over £330 and spend­ing £119 on our goods, but we were able to ex­plain our aims and the work we do to many in­ter­ested chil­dren and adults.” The char­ity has thanked cen­tre man­ager Frances Burt and her staff for host­ing the col­lec­tion day.
