SPCS have been fundraising over the past year to raise money to sponsor a guide dog, and to name him in memory of Maurice Sills, a great friend of the school and the cathedral who died in 2017 aged 101.
Thanks to the fantastic efforts of the pupils, and with support from staff and parents, we had raised the total required to sponsor a puppy, and on 21st November 2020, Maurice was born!
Maurice will soon be placed with his Puppy Walker, who will start to teach him the skills that he will need as a future guide dog. This is the beginning of a very exciting journey for Maurice.
For now, he is an uncoordinated bundle of fluff, but over the next few weeks and months we look forward to sharing the beginnings of his transformation into a responsible guide dog.
