Guide Dogs supporter group needs more help
“The Banbury supporter group is in urgent need of new volunteers, to help ensure the group can keep running and can continue to raise funds to help people affected by sight loss”
A Guide Dogs supporter group, based in Banbury, is appealing for new volunteers to help raise vital funds towards the charity’s work. Guide Dogs Banbury are part of a network of groups across the UK, who help raise money to fund the range of services Guide Dogs provides to help people with sight loss.
Although the group’s activities are currently restricted due to the Covid-19 outbreak, they want to remind us there are still lots of ways we can support them, from online fundraising, to collecting money from the charity’s local collection boxes.
Felicity Stratton, Community Fundraising Relationship Manager for Guide Dogs Banbury, said: “Over the past few months, our supporter groups have adapted to the Covid-19 outbreak and have found new ways to fundraise, both online and whilst following social distancing guidelines.
“The Banbury supporter group is in urgent need of new volunteers, to help ensure the group can keep running and can continue to raise funds to help people affected by sight loss.
“Volunteering as part of a supporter group is a great way to make new friends and give something back to your local community and we have a range of volunteering roles to suit your skills”.
Volunteers must be aged 16 or over. Guide Dogs provides all the training required for each role. To find out more contact Guide Dogs Volunteering Coordinator Mike Hefferan by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0345 143 0201.
