Match Made In Scotland

Why we need your help

Guide Dogs Scotland has been making life changing partnerships

for 50 years.

Help us continue for 50 years more.


Each and every day, Guide Dogs Scotland changes the lives of people who are blind or partially sighted. We provide services to ensure that, when someone loses their sight, they don’t have to lose their freedom as well.

“I applied for a guide dog and

was matched with my first

dog, Eva. Eva has made a

huge difference to my life;

she's a real life-changer"

- guide dog owner Lyn from


Guide Dogs Scotland receives no government funding to provide the guide dog service. We rely entirely on the generosity of public donations. Please help us to continue into the next 50 years by supporting our #matchmadeinscotland fundraising appeal.

Whether you choose to pledge or fundraise £50, £500 or £5000, your money will go to improve the lives of people living with sight loss in Scotland.

Fundraising Ideas:

Organise a dress down day at your work it could even be tartan themed.

Take up the challenge of a 530 mile sponsored cycle - a mile for every guide dog owner in Scotland.

Get sponsored to run or swim 5k for 50 consecutive days.

Do you have a 50th birthday or anniversary coming up? Could you ask friends and family for a donation to Guide Dogs Scotland instead of a gift?

Hold a 1960s inspired party (the decade of our first training school opening in Scotland)

Or simply hold a bake sale at your work or village hall.
