A few weeks ago, we were visited at our Bury St. Edmunds store by a VIP guest, a very important pup! Thakey, who is just 20 weeks old, is currently in training to become a guide dog, all thanks to the outstanding fundraising by Bryan Garnham. 84-year-old Bryan has been helping Guide Dogs for over 50 years, raising around £49,000 since starting and helping 17 guide dogs gain the training needed. We’re proud to have helped Bryan on his journey, supporting him with old bike parts that he has repaired, reinvented and painted for resale. We’ve also helped him by providing services to the bikes prior to their resale.
