TAILS were wagging when volunteers at Guide Dogs Solihull raised £13,000 in less than seven months.

The Solihull fundraising group raised the money by organising supermarket collections and events.

By reaching the milestone the group have been able to support a working partnership between a guide dog and a person with sight loss.

Community fundraising development officer, Felicity Stratton, said: “This amazing group of volunteers have done incredibly well to raise this sum.

“Volunteers kindly offer their time, support and energy to our charity. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to continue our work.

“Our guide dogs are truly life-changing, allowing people with sight loss to enjoy the same freedom and independence as everyone else.

“We are so proud of our volunteers and would like to thank them for everything they do. We also wish to recognise the fantastic support that the group receives from individuals and businesses within the local community.”
