Staff at Belper’s Specsavers shop have staged a series of fundraising events to raise £1,000 for Guide Dogs for the Blind.

The King Streetstore held a raffle with prizes donated from, Fresh Basil, Cafe Nonos, Hall of frames, Frearsons, Sundial, Zhivago Jewellery in Matlock and Specsavers.

During a weekend of activities they also organised a pass the parcel for the kids, guess how many sweets are in the tube and guess the name of the puppy with prizes to be won. And staff took on a 10 mile walk across the Chevin into Duffield and back to further boost the total.
