We are delighted to tell you all that Adel, who was puppy raised by volunteer Anne Mulligan has officially qualified as an Assistance Dog and has been matched with a young boy in Co. Kildare. We wish Adel and her new family the best of luck in the future and we want to thank Anne for all her hard work. We are also happy to announce that our Balbriggan Branch attended the Bremore Castle Food and Craft Village back on Sunday the 4th September and a total of €161.50 was raised. A big thank you to all the volunteers and all who came over to support us. Jacqui Madden was the winner of our Guide Dog Hamper, a big congratulations to Jacqui again and thank you for supporting us. Are you looking for ways to support your local Balbriggan Branch of Guide Dogs? Well, we are hoping to hold a Quiz night in November/December, be sure to keep an eye on our Facebook/Instagram for updates on that. Another way you can help us is if you have any old coins or stamps that are no longer in circulation. Annually our branch puts out this request, ‘If you have any used postage stamps, stamp albums, or coins which are no longer in circulation, please give them to us. We will turn them into Euros and lodge them to the guide dogs account.’ We receive coins from all over the world and old postage stamps. In our guide dog boxes and large collection dogs we find coins from all over the world and from Europe that are no longer legal currency since the Euro came into place. We get paper notes of all sorts of denominations, coins and used stamps from our branch volunteers and friends.If you are interested in volunteering with our Balbriggan branch of Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind, please feel free to contact us by call or text: 085 7663107, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can find us on Facebook: Balbriggan Branch of Guide Dogs.
