GUIDE dog Yalena was a special guest at Newport’s Specsavers store at the weekend as part of a fundraising day.
Yalena was with her owner Hilary Lester at the store in High Street as part of the fundraising event for Guide Dogs Week, which was held from October 5 to 13. The day saw the store donate £1 from every eye test to Guide Dogs and also carry out repairs and alterations to people’s glasses for a small contribution to the charity.
The Guide Dog’s mascot was also out and about in the city centre and other activities taking place in store included facepainting and a cake sale.
The store had raised just under £200 on Saturday afternoon with more funds still expected to come in.
Director of the store, Craig Mackenzie said: “It’s been a really good fun day.”
