A new team of volunteers and fundraisers for the Guide Dogs charity is being created in Weston-super-Mare.

The charity trains guide dogs to help people who are blind or partially-sighted.

It is creating a new fundraising group in Weston to co-ordinate bucket collections and events to raise money.

Krissie Isaac, who co-ordinates fundraising in Weston, said: “Volunteering is fun and rewarding.

“You know you are helping to make a real difference to the lives of people who are visually impaired who rely on using a guide dog to maintain their independence.

“I am sure you will enjoy being part of our newly-formed team in the Weston area.”

Someone is also needed to walk a guide dog, and support a visually-impaired person who needs help to become more independent.
