Pounds for pups at Specsavers Fleet

23 October, 2014

 

Furry customer

Specsavers in Fleet welcomed some of its furriest customers into the store for a day of fundraising to support Guide Dogs on Saturday 11 October.

Staff from Specsavers in Fleet invited puppies from the Guide Dogs charity into the store. In the run up to the visit from the Guide Dog puppies, the store hosted its very own Canine Competition. Customers were invited to send in pictures of their pups which were displayed in the store.

The winner of the Canine Competition was Vicenzo, owned by Jann Hodge, and was chosen by the visiting Guide Dogs volunteer. Jann won a luxury hamper and a free pair of glasses. 

Fantastic work in the community

Amish Patel, store director at Specsavers Fleet, says: ‘Guide Dogs does a lot of fantastic work in the community and we were delighted to have the chance to invite the guide dog pups in store to raise awareness.

'We would like to thank the local people of Fleet for their generosity on the day and also congratulate Jann and Vicenzo, winners of our Canine Competition.’

Established in 1931

Guide Dogs is the UK’s largest charity to provide assistance dogs for blind and partially sighted people. The charity has given more than 29,000 people the chance to live a more independent life since it was established in 1931.

Specsavers stores are raising money as part of a nationwide initiative to raise £250,000 to support 25 puppies from training to qualification.
