Tomley’s helps guide dogs

A summer party will be held outside of Tomley’s market

Tomley’s Market, 2897 Foul Bay Rd., is hosting a fundraiser for the B.C. Guide Dog Services on Saturday, May 18 from noon to 4 p.m.

The summer party will be held outside of Tomley’s market in the parking lot.

The fun includes a barbecue with hotdogs, pop, ice cream, yogurt, cookies and coffee for sale by donation, and Island Farm’s Daisy the Cow will be there to have fun with the kids.

B.C. Guide Dog Services provides professionally trained guide dogs for visually-impaired people and autism support dogs for families with autistic children in British Columbia and Alberta, at no cost to the recipient. The dogs are trained by volunteers who raise the puppys under strict guidelines for 18 months.
