NewsPlus in St.Leonards Road, Bexhill, once again supported Guide Dogs Week by running a Raffle and Cake Sale throughout the whole week from October 3 - 10.

Barbara Grice, with Toffie, and Julia Delibero with one-year old Guide Dog puppy in training, Hudson, went along to add their support.

Julia Delbero said: “In addition, Guide Dogs volunteers were collecting at Sainsburys all day on October 2 and the wonderful customers raised a terrific £345.”

There are currently 180,000 blind or partially sighted people in the UK who rarely leave home alone

The charity trains around 780 guide dogs each year, but to help meet the demand for new guide dogs they desperately need to create a third more guide dog partnerships by 2020. You can sponsor a guide dog for just £1 a week.
