The children and staff at After School Club (Pelican Club) were delighted to welcome Mary Rasmussen and her dog Vince from charity Guide Dogs. Mary spoke to the children about being blind and the important work that the charity do by providing a dog for her. She explained how Vince helps her avoid dangerous situations such as cars being parked on pavements or in disabled bays. She involved the children by getting them to describe to her how she could find the entrance door.
The children asked Mary about being blind, how old Vince was, was he allowed to be off the lead and how much it cost to have him. After the meeting the children said that they would like to help raise money for Guide Dogs. The Pelican Club are holding various cake/savouries sales on Thursday 30 May, Tuesday 4 June and Thursday 6 June from 3.20pm onwards. Families are welcome to come along and support our children help a charity they have been inspired by.
