Specsavers in the Isaac Newton Centre are hoping a special guest tomorrow (October 10) will help the store raise money for the Guide Dogs charity.

William the guide dog will be visiting the Grantham opticians from 1.30pm to 4pm tomorrow as part of Guide Dogs Week (October 4-12).

Staff will be supporting the campaign by collecting donations dressed in bright neon colours, featuring the neon yellow of the iconic Guide Dogs harness, and are inviting members of the public to come and see William.

Bijal Ladva, store director of Specsavers Grantham, said: “It’s always a real pleasure to invite guide dogs and their owners and trainers into the store.

“We hope that William’s visit will help raise awareness of how important it is to make it easier for blind and partially sighted people to enjoy the same freedom of movement that most of us may take for granted.”

All of the money raised will go to the Guide Dogs charity, with more information at www.guidedogs.org.uk
