Again, we would ask you if you can to support this worthwhile charity through our collection boxes and fundraising activities in whatever way you can. Our team have joined Friends of the Guide Dogs - we would ask that you could join too.
A guide dog can change the life of a blind or partially sited person.
Guide Dogs for the Blind are committed to providing this amazing opportunity to as many people as possible. Age is no barrier and here's no upper age limit. People in their seventies, eighties and nineties have become successful guide dog owners and Guide Dogs are now working with children and young people under the age of 16. Guide dogs aren't just for the blind - you don't need to have lost all your sight, most people who own a guide dog still have some vision. You don't have to be officially registered as blind or partially-sighted either. Guide Dogs for the Blind also recognise that the costs of owning a guide dog may not be easy for everyone to manage and provide all the essential equipment free of charge and financial assistance if needed for things like food or veterinary costs. All training is provided. No previous experience of keeping or caring for a dog is necessary.
