Chance to stock up on festive treats at Guide Dogs’ Christmas market

Solihull Editorial 15th Nov, 2018   0

DOG lovers are invited to get into the festive spirit at the Guide Dogs’ Christmas market.

The charity will be opening the doors of its National Breeding Centre on Banbury Road on Saturday November 24 for visitors to stock up on gifts for two and four-legged friends.

There will be stalls, a café and a raffle at the market running between 11am and 4pm.

Funds raised will go to supporting those living with sight loss by providing a guide dog for life.




A charity spokeswoman said: “As well as offering a fun and festive shopping experience, our hope is to educate the public and raise money in order to support the two million people in the UK living with sight loss.

“By 2050, this figure is expected to rise to nearly four million. Every hour, another person in the UK goes blind.”


Entry to the market costs £1.
