Volunteers lend their eyes to support blind people

A service set up by the Guide Dogs charity is helping blind people get out and about with the help of specially trained volunteers.

People can "lend their eyes" for a few hours a week as part of the My Guide scheme - helping blind and partially sighted people take part in exercise and activities.

Lucinda Czyrek, who is Jackie Elshaw's guide, says it's also about friendship.

Jackie said being able to get out independently makes her "life seem more credible".
