Cuddly toy dogs created by a blind veteran with the help of his family.
In 2009, blind veteran Simon Brown and his family created cuddly toy dogs named the Dunstan Dogs, after St Dunstan's which is now known as Blind Veterans UK.
Simon's mum Wendy and aunt Sandra worked hard on producing custom made costumes for the toys which included t-shirt, combat trousers, a cane and sunglasses. Simon and his dad, Mike, provided logistical support.
Of the ten toys that were initially made, three travelled around the world with Transglobe, a major Tri-Service Adventurous Sail Training Exercise which was open to all UK Service Personnel.
The rest of the toys were used to fundraise for the charity through various events, one of them even had a Just Giving page named Dunstan the Dog and managed to raise £46.50.
