The guide dog service receives no government funding and relies entirely on the generosity of the public; in fact, two out of three guide dogs are thanks to gifts received in Wills.
It's thanks to gifts in Wills that guide dog owner Lynette has her guide dog, Pippa. It's thanks to gifts in Wills that Lynette has the freedom to live every day to the full. Lynette explains "Before I got Pippa I was struggling just to walk to the shops. I didn't have any confidence. Now I'm able to do what I want, when I want to do it. I'm finishing my degree, doing a part-time job... and my friends can be my friends, not my carers."
These gifts play a huge part in enabling Guide Dogs to fulfil a lifetime promise to provide each guide dog owner with a guide dog for as long as they need one. You can find out more about how you can support Guide Dogs in this way by visiting our website.Tribute pages Next
