Charity of the Year
We are delighted that Guide Dogs UK will be our Charity of the Year for 2017/2018.
Every hour another person in the UK goes blind. Guide Dogs UK are here to make sure they do not lose their freedom as well.
Guide Dogs UK now have over 5000 working guide dog partnerships in the UK, with over 40 in Wiltshire alone. Each partnership costs just under £55k during it’s working lifetime and they rely solely on donations and legacies to help supply our life-changing services. There is no upper or lower age limit to owning a guide dog, people in their nineties have become successful guide dog owners as well as children as young as eleven. You do not need to have lost all your sight to own a guide dog, most people who own a guide dog still have some vision.
