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!

In the last year my dad has been fortunate enough to avoid permanent vision loss after successful surgery in both his eyes to treat glaucoma, but many people are not so lucky. Working as a vet, I've witnessed first hand what a difference Guide Dogs make to the lives of my visually impaired clients, giving them a freedom and independence that they otherwise would not have, as well as enriching their lives with canine companionship.

I've been running for a few years, and having watched the London Marathon since I was a kid, I decided it was time to join the thousands of people running it to give something back to a good cause! By raising money for Guide Dogs, I hope to help those people less fortunate than my dad to receive the lifeline that a Guide Dog offers them.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Thank you so much for supporting me to raise money for this fantastic charity!

Matt
