Why we need your help

Help Guide Dogs change lives by supporting us at the iconic Virgin Money London Marathon on Sunday 26th April 2020!

In the UK today, there are two million people living with blindness or visual impairment. Guide Dogs work to support individuals living with sight loss, and their families, to overcome to the emotional and physical challenges they face.

Many of us will take our sight for granted and it’s difficult to imagine our lives without it. However, for some losing their sight is unexpected; it can lead to feelings of isolation or even depression. 

At 17, Lucy had her whole life planned, when she was old enough she wanted to do a medical degree at university. Sadly, she spent the next three years of her life in and out of hospital undergoing various medical procedures. She still has some usable vision but guide dog Olivia has greatly improved Lucy’s mobility, supporting her in achieving her dream; attending university to study Psychology.

“Olivia and I will be going to university which was always my dream. My field of study has changed slightly, to Psychology. I want to help people with sight loss, other people in the visual impaired community and people who suffer with depression,” Lucy told us.

Our ambition is for a future where every person with sight loss has the confidence and support to live their lives to the full.
