Jack Crowley is supporting Guide Dog Day on 27 May which aims to change the lives of 85 families –
Charity provides Guide Dogs to those who are vision impaired and Assistance Dogs to the families of children with autism
Munster player Jack Crowley has become an Ambassador for Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind to support the work of the charity changing the lives of those who are vision impaired and the families of children with autism. Jack is also supporting Guide Dog Day on Friday 27 May.
The family of the 22-year-old fly-half from Bandon, West Cork puppy raised a number of pups for the charity over the years.
“I am delighted to help the team at Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind. I spent many happy hours visiting the Training Centre in Cork when I was a kid and got to see how the pups we had raised at home were then brought through their formal training to become Guide Dogs and Assistance Dogs. The dogs are incredible animals which can really transform someone’s life.”
Jack visited the Centre recently to meet with fellow Ambassador, soccer legend Roy Keane as they both attended a photoshoot for Guide Dog Day which takes place on 27 May.
