Paws to think of celebrations

PARTY time is nearly here for Guide Dogs and fund-raisers are being invited to put forward their celebratory ideas.

The charity will soon be marking 80 years of providing guide dogs for blind and partially-sighted people and it hopes to cash in on the anniversary with a Go for 80 campaign.

Whether it’s running, swimming or dancing for 80 minutes, holding an 80s-,themed disco or sitting in a bath of beans for 80 minutes, everyone is encouraged to take part and come up with their own ideas for fund-raising activities.

The anniversary is on Thursday, October 6 and falls during Guide Dogs Week.
