Guide Dogs for the Blind Pavement Parking campaign

Guide Dogs for the Blind held their annual Summer Fair at St Mary's Parish Hall on Cannon Street in Dover on Saturday to raise money and to raise awareness for their Pavement Parking campaign.

The fair included refreshments, books, puzzles, homemade cakes and Christmas cards on sale. All of the proceeds from the event will go to the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association.

Guide Dogs' Pavement Parking campaign aims to raise awareness among motorists of the affect parking on pavements has on the blind and the partially sighted, who have to risk their lives by stepping out into the road when the pavement is obstructed. It is important that drivers are more aware of the impact that pavement parking has on pedestrians. Especially the blind, the partially sighted and the disabled. It is unfair that they have to put their lives at risk when going about everyday tasks.

Thank you to everyone who helped arrange such a super event to help raise money for a very important cause, and to everyone who turned out to support it.
