Charlotte Walton Community Fundraiser for Guide Dogs in West Yorkshire said: “This gorgeous film follows the journey a guide dog puppy makes from birth, to qualifying as a life-changing guide dog – something that many people won’t know very much about.

"Not only are we showing the film, but inviting local guide dog owners, puppy walkers and guide dog trainers to stay for a question and answer session – so the audience can find out, first hand, what it’s really like!

"The event will raise money for Guide Dogs and enable us to train more life changing guide dog puppies in West Yorkshire”.
