Turner - GMB's New Recruit

Turner - GMB's New Recruit

Now GMB’s Guide Dog Billy has graduated, it’s time for the new recruits to start their training.

With the help of the delegates at GMB Congress 2018 Mary Finn, GMB Scotland Branch Secretary raised enough money to sponsor another Guide Dog puppy.

Turner; pictured above, named after our much loved Mary Turner, GMB National President, 15 June 1938 – 19 July 2017, was born on Sunday 3 March 2019 to Mum Quala and Dad Smartie.

Turner has been placed with his puppy walker who will start to teach him the skills that he will need as a future guide dog.

Every hour another person in the UK goes blind, donations like the ones from GMB Union help to ensure that they don’t lose their freedom too.   

Turner still has a long way to go with his training; you can keep up to date with Turner’s incredible journey here on GMB Scotland’s website.
