A Wiltshire farm shop has teamed up with Guide Dogs UK to help raise money to train a puppy.

Dauntsey Farm Shop, on Brinkworth Road in Dauntsey, hopes to raise £5,000 as part of Guide Dog UK's 'Name a Puppy' scheme. The four-figure-sum will pay for the initial training of a puppy in its journey to become a fully-fledged guide Dog who could change someone's life.
