Eighth Pup4Joy

It gives me great pleasure in sharing with you the latest news in our 4Joy Appeal. On the 14th November 2014 we reached another wonderful milestone by raising £45,000!

We are going to name our Eighth Guide Dog Pup4Joy Mattie and the name has been approved by the charity which is great news too.

In fact the appeal has just gone over £46,000 which is absolutely tremendous and thank you to everyone who has donated.
