Specsavers in Larkhall encouraged customers to paws for thought in support of International Assistance Dogs Week.

Staff at the Union Street store hosted a bake sale to raise funds for charities including Assistance Dogs UK, Guide Dogs Scotland and Hearing Dogs for Deaf People and staff also welcomed a guide dog trainer to the store to help raise awareness of the work of Guide Dogs Scotland specifically.

Raising awareness
Store director Steven Brennan said: ‘As an opticians at the heart of the community, we meet and work with customers who are living with a lot of different physical challenges.

‘We’ve seen first-hand how assistance dogs, guide dogs and hearing dogs help our customers, and it’s important for us to support that.

‘We’re very proud to be involved in raising awareness of the fantastic work these charities carry out across Scotland and beyond.'
