(We are looking back and it’s about May time now.)
Now that I am a volunteer for guide dogs, I have learnt so much not only about the charity and the great work it can do but also about the amazing partnerships that have been made.
My Job role, is as Media Assistant so I have written several press releases one that I am particularly proud of because I wrote it as though from a guide dog Edward, through this I learnt that it costs on average £50,000 per dog that Guide Dogs fund, this figure I think is astonishing but so worth while.
I have also decided that I would make a couple promotional videos for Guide Dogs to help promote the charity and hopefully encourage people to volunteer or perhaps even donate to the cause.
Through out the process of becoming a volunteer, I met Janet who works for the charity and she put me in contact with Chris, who is a guide dog owner that might just be interested in being a part of my project!
