Furry guests delighted customers at an opticians in Portishead.

Wayne, an 11-year-old guide dog, and Bianca, a 19-week-old puppy, greeted visitors at Specsavers as the store celebrated Guide Dogs Week.

Staff wore neon to support the cause and there were also plenty of cakes on sale which raised £147 for Guide Dogs.

Customers were able to find out more about the charity’s work and meet the friendly dogs.

Guide Dogs Week is the charity’s annual awareness and fundraising event and Specsavers has supported the cause for 10 years raising £27,000 for 25 puppies.
