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


Seven intrepid members of Gobeyond Partners are aiming to cover 962 miles in June by complete a series of personal challenges on foot and bike. Each of us has chosen a target equivalent to one of the world's great journeys including completing the length of Hadrian's Wall, climbing Mount Fuji, the Great Ocean Road in Australia, the Cabot trail in Nova Scotia and St Francis Way in Italy.

All money raised will be used to support Guide Dogs for the Blind, hoping our small steps will help Guide Dogs make giant leaps. 

-£50 could pay for fun, tactile activities to help children co-ordinate their muscles and movements.

-£96 could pay for an eye test each for two guide dogs in training

-£116 could buy a Training School Kit for one of our guide dog trainers who will teach pups the specialist skills they need as fully qualified guide dogs.

-£710 could buy a Birthing Kit containing all the essential equipment for a guide dog mum to safely deliver her puppies.

The ability to get around is vital in order to live a full life yet thousands of people with sight loss never leave home alone. We empower visually impaired people to do that and rely on the support of the public to fund the guide dog service.
