The Veterinary Society is raising money for the Guide Dogs UK charity with the aim of sponsoring a puppy for guide dog training. The society’s target is to raise at least £104 through their raffle with a grand prize of a huge teddy bear (as pictured) up for grabs. Tickets are £2 each and will be available on Wednesday 27th November in the bottom floor of the Faccenda building from 13:00-13:45pm and Wednesday 4th December from 12:00-13:00pm.
The money raised will contribute towards breeding, training, vet bills and supporting guide dogs throughout their life. The charity’s goals are to make sure every person with sight loss has the confidence and support they need to live their lives to the full, with plans to increase their support from 200,000 today to 500,000 by 2023.
Keep your eyes peeled as the winner of the raffle will be announced on the 4th of December.
“We’ve chosen Guide Dogs UK as our chosen charity to support the 360,000 people who have vision impairment or are blind. At the moment only 8,000 of these people have a guide dog in the UK. Not only are guide dogs hard working but they are also loveable companions that improve the lives of everyone they meet. In sponsoring a Guide Dog puppy, we are supporting them through their early life and training up to the age of 2 so that they can have a positive impact on the world.”
