Be Independent

“To give my guide dog a free run,  I labelled each gate on the way. Even though the path was too muddy to distinguish with my feet, the phone was telling me whether the gates were directly in front or behind, or if I had gone off the path. This was just brilliant.” – Steph, Birmingham
