Guide Dogs for the Blind Assembly at Bosmere Junior School – 12th September

I was invited to attend an Assembly in the afternoon where the children were told about the work that the Guide Dogs for the Blind do for their handlers/owners. We had the pleasure of sitting with and talking to a blind lady from Havant who brought her rather lovely, very large Labrador dog along. He was lovely and enjoyed, or seemed to, being petted and adored by all. Bosmere School takes part in a walk to raise funds for Guide Dogs for the Blind each year and hopefully the visit will have encouraged many to take part in the walk this year.

Bosmere Junior School’s support for this began in 1972 when a pupil who was going to do a walk asked if the school would support her with many others taking part to raise funds. They are now in their 42nd year of this support!
