The staff at Edmonds & Slatter opticians have been working very hard to reach a £5000 fundraising target for Guide Dogs. At the start of the month they received the exciting news that, with help from their patients, friends and family, the target has been reached!
For just over a year Edmonds & Slatter have participated in Guide Dogs “Name a Puppy” scheme and have raised the funds that will take the puppy from birth to the start of training school. Fundraising activities have included a sponsored dog walk, a golfing day, a night at an Indian restaurant, collections and raffles.
Tim Cole, Partner and Dispensing Optician at Edmonds & Slatter said “We are extremely proud to have been able to raise this money which will help provide independence and freedom for someone who is blind or partially sighted. I’d like to thank everyone who contributed towards our target.”
The staff are now waiting for their next “Pup-date” when their puppy has been born. Edmonds & Slatter will then be able to name the puppy and not too long after that, meet him or her.
