Community-minded 3rd Pocklington Guides were treated to a visit from a guide dog recently and presented a cheque for £25 to the charity Guide Dogs.

The guides had raised the money as part of their community service by holding a ‘Let’s Glow’ party during Guide Dog week, wearing ‘glowing’ clothes and taking part in activities based on visual awareness.

The guides are also collecting mobile phones for the charity.

Jane McCabe, from Guide Dogs, introduced the girls to a retired guide dog who demonstrated his skills and then explained how guide dogs are trained from puppies until they meet their new owner.
