Guide Dogs Week 2017
30 August 2017
Every hour another person in the UK goes blind. When someone loses their sight, Guide Dogs are there to make sure they don’t lose their freedom as well.
From the 7th -15th October, Guide Dogs celebrates the amazing things they do and this year they’re asking you to Move it for Money!
Taking part is simple! If it moves you to action, if it moves you to tears or even just moves your feet – sign up to get your pack and wearable dog ears to bring your fundraising to life.

How will you Move it for Money?
You can Move it however you want…
- Love baking? Move your mixer and organise a bake sale.
- Social superstar? Hold a party and shake the cocktails.
- Love a challenge? Get sponsored to move your muscles in an active challenge.
Lucy, aged 15, just loves baking and so put her skills to good use by holding bake sales for Guide Dogs. Lucy says:
"I’ve seen first-hand the difference Guide Dogs can make to someone's life. I was very conscious how lucky I am to have my sight and Independence. I love dogs and was amazed at how they can help someone and this inspired me to volunteer for Guide Dogs."
Whatever you do for Guide Dogs, you’ll be helping to change the lives of people with sight loss.
