The group is run entirely by volunteers are they are looking for a new volunteer to help organise events and to fundraise for the charity.

The role is key in the group, as they are the point of contact for the organisation and delivery of events such as tea parties, collections and socials.

Guide Dogs aim to support blind and partially sighted people throughout the UK, as guide dogs give them a sense of independence and safety.

Tammy McMichael, community fundraising relationship manager for Guide Dogs, said: “Being part of the group is a great way to make new friends, while helping to raise awareness and funds for Guide Dogs now that we can get back out and about again.

“It costs around £60,000 to support a guide dog from birth to retirement and Guide Dogs relies almost entirely on public donations, so the support we get from our local groups is vital. If you’re from the area and think you could help us, please get in touch.”

It is a great way to help a good cause and be a part of the local community.

Volunteers must be over 16 and all training will be provided by Guide Dogs.
