The week started with a fabulous visit from David, Ian and Jeanette and their guide dogs Natalie and Norma. They explained to the children the important work that guide dogs do and the life changing difference they make to people with visual impairments. Currently in England we have over 2000 guide dogs, with a further 1400 guide dogs in training. David explained to the children the complexity of the training involved and how the money the children raised during ‘Pet Week’ will help towards Cookies’ training - the guide dog school is sponsoring. This was a fascinating visit, with the children learning a lot of facts and information. It was also important for them to see how their hard work, along with your kind donations are having a significant positive impact upon other people. This was really a very uplifting experience for all involved and the two dogs were exceptional.
