Guide Dogs

We breed and train guide dogs to give blind people freedom and mobility

Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure.

So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Take a look at why I've chosen to fundraise for Guide Dogs UK......

Guide Dogs provide mobility and freedom to blind and partially sighted people. They also campaign for the rights of people with visual impairment, educate the public about eye care and fund eye disease research. They have been expertly breeding and training guide dogs for more than 75 years, providing many thousands to blind and partially-sighted people of all ages and from all walks of life. They also deliver confidence-building rehabilitation services to adults, young people and children - including long cane mobility training and communication and daily living skills. Guide Dogs carries out research that provides sound scientific evidence on which to base their services, campaigns, policies and operational procedures. Visual impairment is a fact of life for thousands of people, and with an ageing population many more will be affected by sight loss in the future.  Guide Dogs campaign alongside visually-impaired people for rights that most sighted people take for granted.  These include access to services and transport, freedom of mobility, and provision of better rehabilitation services.  Working closely with guide dog owners, service providers, other voluntary organisation and MPs, They have won major victories and have successfully lobbied to influence policies and legislation.

The charity trek I will be doing covers 65 km through the Mont Blanc region of the Alps. I will trek through 3 countries in 3 days!
The trek will certainly challenge me with lots of ups and downs, but the reward is the knowledge that I will be raising money for Guide Dogs UK and the fantastic work they do!
