During Agfest, 3-5 May, Royal Guide Dogs Tasmania was out in force, spreading the word about our services, meeting clients, selling merchandise and generally making people’s day with a pat or lick from our pups.
After a very muddy start, a huge crowd flocked to Agfest, and we conservatively estimate that we spoke to over 5,000 people about Royal Guide Dogs Tasmania during the three-day event. This was fantastic exposure for us and we enjoyed meeting so many people, hearing their stories, providing advice and sharing information.
Royal Guide Dogs Tasmania attends Agfest with a ‘whole-of-organisation’ approach. Our instructors, puppies, fundraisers, volunteers and public relations teams all attend, across all three days, to demonstrate the link between a donation or purchase and a service provided to a person with a vision impairment; between patting a puppy and assisting to train a Guide Dog; between story-telling and advice-giving.
We will continue to attend Agfest in this capacity to ensure our organisation is represented in the best possible light, to the most number of people... Despite the mud!
