Brownies boost for guide dogs

Have your say

St Gabriel’s Brownies in Sunderland have been raising money for Guide Dogs.

 The girls took part in a sponsored guide dog walk around Herrington park in rain and mud.

 Over the past weeks, they have been taking part in activities to relate to how it would feel/ how difficult it is for someone who is blind, and have raised £400.

 Ethne and her puppy (training) guide dog Freddie from the Guide Dogs went along to the Brownies’ meeting in St Gabriel’s Church.

  She spoke to the girls about how much a guide dog costs, how they are trained and what they are able to do.

The brownies presented her with the cheque for £400.

 The group meets every Monday from 6pm- 7.15pm.

 Brown Owl Hannah Potts said: “We are all very proud of their hard work they have put into this challenge.”
