"It’s a perfect fit as the production features two lovable dogs, Bruiser and Rufus. LAMS is an independent Scottish charity and we fund our annual production through a variety of fundraising events and activities, patronage, club membership, merchandise and ticket sales.

"During the pandemic, members came together virtually to participate in activities to support other local and national charities, including Macmillan Cancer Support, Alzheimer Scotland and The Brain Tumour Charity.

“As we begin the final countdown to Legally Blonde in March, we’re really proud to be able to support another charity, Guide Dogs, in raising awareness of the important work it does across the country.”

I then started volunteering for the charity that has helped me to re-build my life. And now, I am a passionate employee working full time for Guide Dogs – this charity has truly changed my life.”
