We have recently completed the challenge to raise £5000 to breed and fund a guide dog puppy through its first year of training. Our sponsored puppy is named Jaydee, and will be visiting Enterprise House very soon. Guide Dogs is such a great cause and the service gets no government funding so it relies heavily on donations, fundraising and volunteers.
Guide Dogs currently have approximately 4,500 guide dog partnerships in the UK, but it is estimated that there are still around 10,500 blind or partially sighted people who would benefit from a guide dog. Hopefully our puppy sponsorship will contribute towards meeting this need.
To reach the target, members of our team have participated in red, white and blue days, completed the London marathon, held various competitions, donated old CDs and done much more – all for the benefit of our ‘puppy pound’.
