Guide Dogs - naming a puppy

Following on from our fundraising earlier this year, we are very pleased to have chosen Guide Dogs as our Charity of the Year for 2020.  2020 marks the 30th anniversary of our Director losing his sight, so this charity means a lot to us.

We are working towards naming a guide dog puppy and supporting it through its first year of basic training and socialisation. This puppy will hopefully go on to be a partner for someone with sight loss and will help them to live an independent life.

We will keep all our customers updated with our progress!  Thank you again for supporting our fundraising earlier this year.

To donate, please visit our Just Giving page.
