National Guide Dogs Week

To celebrate National Guide Dogs Week (October 4 to 12), we have a special feature looking at when one of our Advertiser reporters ventured out on a ‘blind drive’ where she experienced some of the difficulties the visually impaired must suffer.

Pictured here is a fundraising day at Sainsburys in Kimberley last month which raised £350 for Guide Dogs for the Blind. This included a guide dog in training from the charity, a tombola and staff member Angela Sheldon dressed up in a dog costume.

A team of neon-clad fundraisers will be at the supermarket on Friday October 10 to bag pack for the charity as part of the national awareness week.
