Staff at Stanhope Park Veterinary Hospital raise £2,250 to help train guide dog puppies

Darlington and Stockton Times: Guide dogs can be a lifeline for their owners Guide dogs can be a lifeline for their owners

VETERINARY surgery staff in Stanhope have raised over £2,000 to help the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association train puppies.

Workers at the Stanhope Park Veterinary Hospital started their fundraising last October and through a series of events such as sponsored walks and a bag pack, they beat their £2,000 target to raise £2,250 for the charity.

The staff were supporting the national initiative Stand Out For Guide Dogs and hospital owner Micaela Wright said they were delighted to help fund training for animals that become a lifeline to their owners.

In recognition of the hospital’s contribution, the Guide Dogs Association will let Stanhope Park staff name one the puppies who will receive funding from their efforts.

Ms Wright and her team voted to call the puppy Stan if it is a boy or Hope if it is a girl.

Well done to Micaela and her fabulous team at Stanhope Park.
Stanhope Park is a wonderful vets practice which has gone from strength to strength since Micaela took over from Mr Geldard. Darlington is lucky to have such a good group of dedicated vets, nurses and support staff.
