We’re bringing our sensory tunnel to Glyndwr University on February 1 and the Tesco store on Border Retail Park on February 2, allowing visitors to experience for themselves the challenges and sensations of life without sight.

Entry to the tunnel is free, plus there’s the opportunity to meet a working guide dog. There will also be a chance to find out more about My Guide, the sighted guiding service which aims to get people out and about in the community.


All about the Bass for bride Kirsty

Kirsty And BassA guide dog swapped his harness for a specially-made collar and tie to act as ring-bearer at his owner’s wedding.

Bass, a two-year-old black labrador, accompanied bride Kirsty Williams as she married care home administrator Tom James in front of 90 guests in South Wales.

Kirsty, who is registered blind, said her life was transformed when she qualified with Bass, her first guide dog, just before Christmas.
