THE Guide Dogs for the Blind have launched their fundraising branch in Yeovil.

The charity receives no government funding and relies heavily on the activities of its local volunteers to raise money, which is used to pay for the training and support of guide dogs throughout their working life.

On Tuesday, April 8, they will be holding an event in Yeovil at Monmouth Hall Library, Monmouth Road, Yeovil, BA21 5NPl from 10.30 am until 12.30.

Refreshments and a light lunch will be provided.

If you would like any more information about the event, please call Stuart Waters on 07990 540131 or the Guide Dogs Exeter Mobility Team on 0845 372 7407.
