VOLUNTEERS in Oxford have raised £13,000 for the charity Guide Dogs.

The money means a guide dog can go into a partnership with someone with sight loss.

The dog, Trixie, is now fully funded for her working dog career, with the money covering food, vets’ bills and ongoing training.

Money was raised through supermarket collections and events, prior to the coronavirus lockdown.

It costs around £57,000 to breed, train and support a guide dog throughout its life.
