Evening Meeting Thursday 1st October: Richard and Jill Bussien - Blind Dog Puppy Walking.

On 1 October Jill and Richard Bussien took us through what is involved in training a Guide Dog Puppy and how the visually impaired are helped not just through guide dogs but also through the help and support of sighted people. It costs £55,000 for a guide dog to go through its training and then support a visually impaired person for the life of the dog.

The local branch has published a puppy calendar for 2021. It is A4 size, spirally bound and we have agreed to collect orders from members and put them together in one large order, thereby avoiding postage costs. The price is £5 and you can add a donation to the Guide Dogs if you wish. Email Carole our Treasurer at Treasurer stating how many you would like and whether you will send Carole a cheque (payable to Beccles U3A) or pay by bank transfer - sort code 40 09 24 and account number 01447890 putting your name in the reference box. Carole will email a receipt to you. The closing date is 26 October so don’t hang around if you are interested. The calendar will be delivered or sent to you. If you prefer to use the phone rather than email, ring Mary on 07835 509773.

Just click on Guide Dog Puppy Walking or the link below to the Live Stream via YouTube at about 7.25pm on Thursday 1 October 2020 and lap up the fun! (See what we did there?)
