Volunteer taster day being held at Guide Dogs in Leamington

Leamington Editorial 7th Jun, 2024   0

A VOLUNTEER taster day is being held at the Guide Dogs headquarters in Leamington this weekend.

Visitors will be able to meet staff, volunteers and dogs from the sight loss charity and find out about the range of volunteering opportuntities on offer on Sunday (June 8).

There will also be dog demonstrations and a chance to meet some local guide dog owners.

Gail Pajak, local volunteering coordinator for Guide Dogs, said: “We’re really looking forward to welcoming the public to our Midlands Regional Centre this weekend, to find out more about volunteering with us.

“At Guide Dogs, we have over 70 volunteering roles. Whether it’s giving a permanent home to a guide dog mum, looking after a guide dog puppy for a year, or supporting a local fundraising group, we have a role to suit everyone.

“Please come along and meet our fantastic local team of staff and volunteers and find out first-hand why people enjoy volunteering for us.

“Of course, we’ll have plenty of our amazing dogs for you to meet too and there’ll be refreshments available.”

The event is part of this year’s Big Help Out, a national initiative raising awareness of volunteering opportunities.

The volunteer event runs from 10am until 2pm at the charity’s centre on Warwick New Road.
