of th­ese pup­pies and their par­ents.”

Anne was able to give the boys an idea of what it is like to be blind, as the young­sters were blind­folded and had to try to find their way around the church hall where the group meet.

Founded by Oliver Jack­son and run by Cathie Shearer for over 40 years, the group is en­tirely self funded with­out the sup­port of any ma­jor or­gan­i­sa­tions, like the Scouts and Boys Brigade.

Any­one in P1-3 is wel­come, and they work closely with feeder schools of King’s Park and Bankhead Pri­maries

They meet ev­ery Mon­day evening from 6.30-7.30pm, as they have done since their for­ma­tion. The Pathfind­ers also run trips and par­ties through­out the year.

The Pathfind­ers held a cof­fee morn­ing last month, which raised £402.67 on the day, with the money be­ing shared be­tween King’s Park’s Pathfind­ers and Pathfinder Guide Dogs.

Gor­don Wil­son from the church group added: “Par­ents, grand­par­ents, staff and con­gre­ga­tion do­nated lots of cakes

“One of the par­ents made a birth­day cake.

“Those who came along also got to guess the Ger­man Shep­herd’s birth­day, win­ning a stuffed dog as their prize.”
