“We’re so excited that the work of Guide Dogs is featured in the latest Lifeline Appeal,” said Andrew Lennox, Chief Executive Officer at Guide Dogs.
“This short film showcases the breadth of Guide Dogs’ services which support people with sight loss throughout their lives, from childhood to adulthood. Thank you to everyone who supports the appeal so we can continue our life-changing work.”
Every pound raised from the appeal will be matched by Guide Dogs’ corporate partner, Petplan, up to a maximum of £20,000.
