SA Guide-Dogs Association Celebrates 70 Years

We are once again supporting and raising funds for SA Guide-Dogs Association for the Blind. This organization provides services to those who have visual, physical or developmental needs and this is by means of training Guide Dogs, Service Dogs, and Autism Support Dogs, or Orientation and Mobility.

A South African woman, Gladys Evans founded the South African Guide Dogs Association for the Blind in 1953 after she returned from England following training with her Guide Dog, Sheena and was inspired to make Guide Dogs accessible to others.

Congratulations SAGDA on this 70 year milestone.

We have some exciting projects up our sleeve in the months ahead that we are sure you will enjoy. So stay connected!

Till next time...
Happy bearmaking!
