A fundraising stall will be run by the Central Coast Volunteer Support Group for the NSW-ACT Guide Dogs Association in Woy Woy on March 19.

Organiser Ms Lynne Lillico, of Pearl Beach, said the stall at the Deepwater Plaza shopping centre would be a good opportunity for people to find out how the association provided free services to help people with impaired vision.
She said it cost more than $50,000 to breed, train and raise one guide dog and, as there was minimal government funding, community support was vital.
“We are a small group of highly dedicated people who are passionate about the work that Guide Dogs do and we have developed relationships with regular customers who come to our stalls land support our endeavours,” Mrs Lillico said.
The Woy Woy fundraising stall will be held on Thursday, March 19.
