Staff at Spire Parkway Hospital in Solihull are planning a series of events to raise £5,000 towards training a guide dog puppy.
Guide Dogs for the Blind Community Fundraiser Felicity Stratton visited the hospital and took along Leo – who is more than halfway through his training.
Leading the fundraising is the hospital’s Clinical Governance Administrator Emma Flower who already has several events planned – including Wear Bright for Sight and a Guide Dog Tea Party.
“It’s a great chance for everyone at the hospital to get involved in what is a fantastic cause. I’ve already received lots of positive responses so I’m confident we will raise £5,000,” she said.
The dog will be called Parkway – Parky for short if it’s a boy and Sparkle if it’s a girl – and the hospital will receive regular updates as it undergoes training, which can take nine months or more.
Hospital Director Tony Yates added: “This is something I have wanted to get involved with for years. Guide dogs can transform the lives of the people they are with, giving them a freedom they couldn’t possibly have without a dog.
“I’m sure everyone here will dig deep to raise the cash and I look forward to meeting Parky or Sparkle face-to-face in the near future.”
