Can you help guide dogs charity?

Worcester Editorial 24th Apr, 2014 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

A PLEA for help has been issued by a city charity after its organiser stepped down.

Guide Dogs Worcester, on Gresley Road, is looking for someone to take over from Craig Stewart who had been in the role for about 12 months.

Craig spent two years being a volunteer at Guide Dogs and will continue to do so despite leaving his position.

The appeal has been launched as an opportunity to get involved with the life changing work of the charity by talking to people at collections, giving someone a few minutes of the day and explaining the work that is done.

The group consists of guide dog owners, puppy walkers, boarders and breeding stock holders, while some have no direct link to Guide Dogs, but just help the charity.

Sue Bushell, Birmingham mobility teams community engagement officer, said:

“Our fund-raising and awareness events are vital at the Guide Dog service received no government funding and every minute of every day, Guide Dogs spends £100 to make independence possible for blind and partially sighted people.

“Guide Dogs provide a range of mobility services and works to break down barriers so people who are blind and partially sighted can get out and about on their own terms, transforming the lives of about 4,600 people every year.”

Anyone interested in the position can contact the Birmingham Mobility Team on 08453 727434 or email Birmingham@guidedogs.org.uk.
