Bradley Stoke opticians welcomes Guide Dogs

Specsavers in the Willow Brook Centre is raising awareness for Guide Dogs UK this week (5 – 11 August) with visits from four-legged friends and a bake sale to raise money for the charity.   The Bradley Stoke team is welcoming several volunteer handlers and their guide dogs into the store, along with guide dog puppies and a dog mascot to help raise awareness and funds for the charity.

A bake sale will also be held on Wednesday 7 August, with cupcakes and other sweet treats available for small donations.

‘We really hope to bring home the message about how life-changing sight loss can be,’ says store director, Vivek Lakhanpaul. ‘We hope the bake sale will help to raise vital funds and allow more people access to Guide Dogs.’   

Guide Dogs provides people with sight loss with the support they need to be able to move around safely and confidently, to get out of their homes and be able to live life the way they choose.

To donate, visit Specsavers in The Willow Brook Centre, Bradley Stoke, BS32 8EF. For more information call 01454 275020 or go to:
