Story

To celebrate The Osmonds: A New Musical recently visiting us at The Alexandra, we are encouraging our audiences to make a donation to our And they call it...Puppy Love campaign, to help us support Guide Dogs Midlands & East puppies in training and beyond. 

We are hoping to raise enough money to Name a Puppy, which would be the start of a Guide Dog puppy's life-changing journey. 

Every pup named through Name a Puppy will help Guide Dogs to deliver their ambition – a future where every person with sight loss has the confidence and support they need to live the life they choose.

Almost two million people in the UK are living with sight loss that has a significant impact on their daily lives. Of those, around 180,000 rarely leave their homes alone and lead lonely, isolated lives. Guide Dogs works for a world where people with sight loss are never left out of life, for a world where being blind or partially sighted is not what defines you. A world with enough support to make the challenges of sight loss no barrier to fulfilling hopes and dreams.

Guide dogs are truly lifechanging. They give hope, confidence, joy, independence, freedom and companionship– to list just a few of the words that have been used to describe what these wonderful guide dogs can provide.

The Osmonds: A New Musical played at The Alexandra from Tue 25 - Sat 29 Oct, telling the story of the five brothers from Utah who were pushed into the spotlight as children and went on to create smash hits decade after decade, including the number 1 hit, Puppy Love.

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.
