Find out more about what is like to be a community volunteer: hear from Andrew
Andrew previously volunteered as a Puppy Raiser and Breeding Dog Holder, and when he moved to Beverley he volunteered as a My Sighted Guide and was partnered with Lewis.
Andrew said: “We go to the cinema, we’ve had a go a running on the Westwood, we’ve been on a couple of history walks round Hull with an amateur historian friend of mine and have even taken part in a game of boules. And we do quite a lot of talking!
While I’ve always enjoyed supporting the dog-side of Guide Dogs, it’s been great to get involved with a more person-centred role. Being a My Sighted Guide volunteer has really brought an extra dimension to my life - meeting and helping someone beyond my normal circle of activity."
