Dunnes Stores Present Cheque to Irish Guide Dogs

December 9, 2014 0

Each year Dunnes Store branches across the country allow Irish Guide Dogs  for the Blind to do a bag pack in  their stores.  We are very grateful to the company for allowing us to do this as all money raised from the bag  packs goes straight to the H.Q. of Guide dogs in cork where it is

put into  immediate use to train more guide dogs for blind people and more assistance  dogs to help family’s who have children with Autism.

In Balbriggan the branch took up its collection in late September and we  want to thank Mr Anthony Ryan Manager Dunnes Stores Balbriggan and his staff  for their total cooperation with us when we did the collection.  We also  want to thank the branch volunteers who made themselves available to collect  on behalf of the branch over those two days.

Should you want to volunteer with us or need to contact us at any time.  Mobile 085 7663107, kola@iol.ie Face book/balbriggan branch of guide dogs www.guidedogs.ie
