Warm-hearted tail of volunteer effort

Guide Dog.
Guide Dog.

National Volunteers Week was recently upon us – June 1-7 – so I would like to take this opportunity through your newspaper to say a very big thank you to all Guide Dogs volunteers who give their 
time, skills and energy to help blind and partially sighted people lead independent lived and get about on their own terms.

Guide Dogs rely on volunteers who give their time for so many things.

From the volunteers who spend much of their time caring for dogs, guiding people who are blind or partially sighted, driving or raising funds, to those who come 
out occasionally to hold a tin or cheer on marathon runners, volunteers are closely involved in almost every area of activity.

We hope to see you volunteering for Guide Dogs again soon!
