Specsavers in Merthyr has raised more than £115 for the Guide Dogs charity by hosting a day of fundraising activities.

Cake sale and visit from the Guide Dogs

The store held a cake sale and had a visit from Sarah Davies, from Guide Dogs, who was accompanied by three guide dogs Nero, Ashby and Bianca.

Brian Borland, director of Specsavers in Merthyr, said: ‘It was a lot of fun hosting the fundraising day in store for the Guide Dogs charity, and the visit from the three dogs was certainly a hit with staff and customers.

‘We really wanted to show our support and raise awareness for such a wonderful charity, which provides invaluable help to the blind and partially sighted individuals.
