An opticians on Kirkcaldy High Street held a fundraising day in aid of Guide Dogs Scotland and raised £340.

The team at Specsavers Kirkcaldy held a bake sale of sweet staff creations and a raffle with all proceeds going to the charity.

Customers and team members received an extra special visit to the store on the day from guide dog Eddie and his owner, who came in to help raise awareness and drum up some more donations. Representatives from Guide Dogs Scotland were also on hand to talk about the great work the charity carries out.

A word from our store director

Kathryn Thompson, store director at Specsavers Kirkcaldy, said: ‘We have been proud supporters of Guide Dogs Scotland for years and it was great to once again raise a good sum for the charity.

‘A big thank you to our special visitors, the store team for baking and hosting the event and also to everyone who kindly donated.’

Guide Dogs Scotland provides blind or partially sighted people with a guide dog to help improve their quality of life. It costs just under £55,000 to train and support a guide dog partnership. Money raised for the charity not only helps to train future guide dogs, but also allows staff to work closely with the new owners and provide them with all the essential items they will need and financial assistance to cover food and veterinary bills
