We had 3 very special visitors today at Chivenor: Catherine Aston, plus her guide dog Jacob (and her Mum!) Catherine was very inspirational and told us that she did not go blind until she was 30. Jacob helps her so much and protects her. She told us how she uses buses (our pupils wanted to know how she knew when to get off). She had us all laughing and showed us photos of Jacob as a puppy 🙂 Catherine is truly inspirational and makes us realise how lucky we are to have our sight, our hearing and our mobility – look at how she has succeeded despite many challenges. We all fell in love with 36kg Jacob.
