VOLUNTEERS are needed to establish a local branch of Guide Dogs.

The charity raises an average of £5,000 per branch each year – funds to continue supporting blind and partially sighted people.

Potential volunteers are invited to Havant Meeting Place, Havant United Reformed Church, Elm Lane, on April 23 at 11am for an informal chat about what is involved.

Community fundraiser Katie Smith said: ‘We are looking for people with the skills and experiences to be a treasurer or branch organiser.

‘But whatever you’re interested in doing, whether you have a little or a lot of time to spare, you will be guaranteed to meet new people and have some fun. At the same time you will be raising funds for Guide Dogs.’
