Charitable children from a Nailsea school have raised £1,500 to sponsor and name a guide dog puppy.
Pupils from the Federation of Hannah More Infant and Grove Juniors started raising money for the cause two years ago to celebrate the school’s 50th anniversary.
The children enjoyed visits from two guide dogs and were inspired and motivated by the talks from volunteer guide dog trainers Jane and Andrea.
Pupils and staff at the school in Whiteoak Way handed a cheque to The Guide Dogs For the Blind Association during an assembly on the last day of term.
Headteacher Kay Church said: “To celebrate our golden anniversary we wanted to achieve a lasting legacy pupils could enjoy which would make a difference to others and we are delighted to have achieved our goal.
“We are now looking forward to meeting own sponsored puppy in the near future.”
