PUP-TASTIC NEWS FOR THE ENCHANTED FOREST COMMUNITY TRUST
Organisers of Scotland's premier sound and light show, The Enchanted Forest Community Trust, has received some pup-tastic news with the birth of Cosmos, a golden retriever and future "guide dog in training" that has been named after the hugely successful 2019 Enchanted Forest event.
The Trust's sponsored the guide dog after Guide Dogs Scotland (Perth & Kinross) were chosen as one of the official charity partners of the 2019 event, alongside the Bumblebee Conservation Trust and PKAVS.
Cosmos a little girl pup was born on 21 January 2020 alongside four other canine siblings named Flossie Wendy Harley and Hazel. Officially named Cosmos this month she has been placed with her puppy walker who will start to teach her the skills she will need as a future guide dog. Guide Dogs received a donation of £5000 from funds raised by the 2019 show's ticket sales.
Ian Sim, Chairman of The Enchanted Forest Community Trust, said: "Cosmos, the theme of our very popular 2019 Enchanted Forest event, has literally been given a new lease of life with the birth of this little guide dog in training, a gorgeous golden retriever. We're delighted with this news, particularly in the current climate when everyone needs a little bit of cheering up, and thrilled that after her training Cosmos will be able to give a blind person a better quality of life and a freedom that without a guide dog they would not be able to have."
Kyla McVicar, Business Development Manager at Guide Dogs Scotland, commented: "We are extremely grateful to the Enchanted Forest Community Trust for their generous support. The birth and naming of Cosmos has been such fantastic news amongst all the current challenges we are facing as a society. We look forward to the day when she is able to provide a blind person with the ability to get out and about and enjoy some level of freedom. Every hour, another person in the UK goes blind. When someone loses their sight, Guide Dogs are here to make sure they don't lose their freedom as well."
The Enchanted Forest event this year is still due to take place between 1 October - 1 November 2020, although The Enchanted Forest Community Trust is closely watching the Coronavirus situation and following Government guidance.
