School children who raised £1,000 for a dog charity will now receive regular ‘pup-date’ updates on the training progress of several puppies.

Pupils from Aston Clinton School gave the cheque to Robert Macleay from Guide Dogs For The Blind when he visited the school with Lindy Mooney and her guide dog Judy.

Mr Macleay said: “The school held an all day festival to raise the money and did it exceptionally well. The deputy head has a long standing connection with guide dogs and we do have a big presence in the Aylesbury Vale area. I think it is nice when the children can see the benefits of the money they have raised and Lindy was able to tell them how having a guide dog has impacted her life.”

The money will go towards training puppies and the children will receive regular pup-dates with pictures on their progress.
