Lough Erne Golf Club's Lady Captain Christine Fitzsimmons recently presented the proceeds of her year's fundraising to Louise Thompson and Kathryn Hicks of the Guide Dogs Enniskillen fundraising group.

Christine fundraised to name a puppy, and was delighted with the support of her fellow golfers and friends. The charity will update Christine on the puppy's progress as it begins a life-changing journey.

"We are delighted to be in receipt of this fantastic total from Christine,” said Guide Dogs NI's Fundraising Manager, Gary Wilson.

“The local community has really got behind Christine's efforts and we are so thankful to the members of Lough Golf Club.”

The Fermanagh fundraising branch are currently seeking new members and the charity has a multitude of volunteer opportunities to suit availabilities.

Gary added: “It costs £54,800 to support a guide dog from birth to retirement, so we are always keen to welcome new fundraisers into the fold. No matter how much time someone can give, there will be a role and a need for them at Guide Dogs NI."
