Lions Bill Foster and Gil Dowson introduce Shadow

On Thursday 24th September Durham Lions members Bill Foster and Gil Dowson accompanied members of the Training Section of the Guide Dogs to meet Shadow, whose training is being paid for by donations from the Spennymoor Comprehensive School and from Durham Lions Club.

The major part of the donation amount had been raised by the schools efforts with Durham Lions covering the shortfall from the proceeds of a bucket collection held earlier. The presentation of Shadow to the Guide Dogs was held in the schools concert room with Third Year pupils and their teacher.

The name Shadow was chosen by the pupils. The photos show Lions Gil and Bill at the presentation and also the pupils making friends with Shadow.
