After this is done, it's time for writing the receipts and the thank you letters so that we can say "thank you" to everyone who supports our group"

Blanaid has been volunteering since 2008.

"My fundraising group does a wide range of activities throughout the year, from collections at the local supermarket to selling Guide Dogs Christmas cards at local fayre’s. Activities are planned throughout the year, and as treasurer I make sure that all the money is kept safe and sound and banked as soon as possible after the event.

I count all the money, bag it up and bank it at my local bank, and after this is done, it’s time for writing the receipts and the thank you letters so that we can say “thank you” to everyone who supports our group.

I enjoy meeting new people and gaining a better insight into all the work done by Guide Dogs, and knowing the money our group raises is helping to change the lives of the visually impaired in my community.

We often have a Guide Dog or two helping out at our events - it’s amazing to see them working!"
