Jock McMillan, Shane Walkley and Rachael Else saved milk bottle caps to raised money for the guide dogs.
Kit’s Kafé in Rochester has raised more than $1000 worth of collected milk bottle caps which will be put towards a Guide Dogs Victoria program which breeds and trains guide dogs.
The cafe saved 2500 bottle caps from Paul’s Milk bottles, worth about 10 cents each.
Kit’s Kafé owner Brooke Walkley said it was an amazing program but was concerned Paul’s had decided to discontinue it.
Mrs Walkley started the program when customer and guide dog user Suzanne Gould suggested it.
Ms Gould, a client of Guide Dogs Victoria, said the charity was helpful to her in providing a $30,000 guide dog free of charge.
She said the program was useful for Guide Dogs Victoria and also ensured the purchase of locally produced milk.
