"It costs £32,400 to train a guide dog partnership. This covers the first two years – from birth to graduation." - Guidedogs.org.uk
We are raising money for GuideDogs.org.uk. We have two visually impaired clients who chose the charity as having their Dogs Isabelle and Martin have made a massive difference to their lives.
To raise money we will be holding an event on:
Saturday 15th August 10am-4pm at Riverside Park, Chester Le Street.
Ashleigh, Grant, Jackie, Lee and Martin will be taking part in a 'Be Blind for the Day' challenge. Wearing blind folds through out the day and taking part in mini challenges.
We will also be hosting small challenges for the general public;
- Making a Sandwich blind folded
- Walk in a straight line
- Identify the Toy (for the kids)
- and much more...
You are welcome to attend and take part, you will also be able to meet some of our Guide Dogs and Guide Dogs in Training.
If you can't attend we would love your help via sponsorship for the Staff taking part.
