Pounds for Pups from Surbiton Opticians

More than £310 was raised for Guide Dogs during a fundraiser held by a local opticians at the Surbiton Festival.

Specsavers in Surbiton, located at 2 Surbiton Parade held a special collection for its long standing charity partner at the annual festival. Customers and staff were also treated to a visit from guide dog owner Philip Inge and his dog Jake.

Jaymin Patel, store director of Surbiton Specsavers, says: ‘Seeing Philip and Jake at the festival really reinforced why we are collecting for the charity. We had so much fun and nobody could resist patting Jake, he was such an adorable dog! Thank you to everyone who generously donated.’

Guide Dogs is the UK’s largest charity to provide assistance dogs for blind and partially sighted people. The charity has given more than 29,000 people the chance to live a more independent life since it was established in 1931.

Specsavers stores are raising money as part of a nationwide initiative to raise £250,000 to support 25 puppies from training to qualification.
