Are you looking for ways to support our Balbriggan/North County Dublin branch but have missed some of our recent merchandise stands? Well, we are happy to announce that a new type of counter box has been placed in Oakes Pharmacy in Skerries, which allows for a donation of €2 minimum by a tap of a phone, this then prompts you to open an app and you can select an amount to donate through this. Another way you can support us is by donating any used postage stamps or old coins no longer in circulation to our Balbriggan Branch. You can contact us on 085 766 3107 to arrange to hand them over and we can then turn them into Euros and lodge them to the Guide Dogs account. We are happy to provide an update on puppy in training, Adel. Adel is doing well in her training as an Assistance Dog and has moved from the highly skilled, wonderful Assistance Dog training Centre to a temporary home for the duration of her training. Each morning she is brought to the Centre for training and then returns home in the evening.We’ll continue to share updates as we get them on Adel but we are delighted to hear she is doing so well. At the end of June last, Tom O’Neill of our Balbriggan/North County Dublin branch joined the Phoenix Branch who hold a monthly walk in Phoenix Park on the last Sunday of every month. The group meet at the Hole in the Wall Pub at 11am and loop back, where the Hole in the Wall are kind enough to provide free teas and coffees for everyone. It is a lovely walk, with very happy Guidedogs and it is a great chance to catch up and meet new people. If you are interested, please contact John Mitchell of the Phoenix Branch for more information Johnamitchell.email@example.comWould you like to Volunteer for your local branch for the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind?
