AS we approach national volunteers week (June 1 to 7) I would like to thank Guide Dogs’ hardworking and committed volunteers in our region for the huge difference they make to our organisation.

More than 300 volunteers complete a range of roles which help support the Guide Dogs service. Their time, skills, energy and dedication makes an invaluable contribution towards enabling people who are blind and partially-sighted to experience life-changing mobility and independence.

If you would like to join our friendly team, particularly as a fundraiser, recruiter or event organiser, please contact 0845-372-7423 or newcastle@guidedogs.org.uk Full induction and training is given and you would have the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping a person who is blind or partially-sighted get out and ab out on their own terms.

Claire Devine Volunteer Development Co-ordinator.
