Each year we support one charity and aim to raise as large a donation to this charity as we can. This year we have all voted at Alder Carr to support the Guide dogs for the blind association.
We think that this is a great charity to support and will do all that we can to support them in 2016.
The guide dogs provide mobility and freedom to blind and partially sighted people. As well as campaigning for the rights of people with visual impairment, educating the public about eye care and funding eye disease research.
It cost Guide Dogs around £48 million to provide the guide dog service and other mobility services in 2014. They really do need as much help as possible to keep up with this life changing service.
We hope that you will help us in supporting this charity throughout 2016 and see if we can raise more than we managed last year! Last year we support St. Elizabeth hospice and managed to raise £3000.
We will keep you informed of fund-raising events that we have throughout the year. Our Strawberry fayre on the 18th June will all be in aid of the guide dogs with all profits from the day being donated.
