Guide dogs help with fundraising
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.
