Nursery children at Wilkinson Primary School have raised over £500 to sponsor three guide dog puppies.
They took part in a sponsored walk around the Good-rated Bilston school’s grounds, and collected £551.20 for the charity Guide Dogs.
The children have been looking at how different animals help people, watching videos and reading about animal charities, and as part of the project received a visit from Carol Trigg and her guide dog Flora – promoting them to launch their fundraising appeal.
Headteacher Christina Gibbon said: “Everyone at Wilkinson feel privileged to have met Carol and Flora. Hopefully the money raised will go a small way to support such an amazing charity.”
Councillor Claire Darke, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Education, said: “It’s great to see nursery children not only learning about the importance of guide dogs, but also completing a fundraiser which will help train up three guide dog puppies – well done to them all!”
