Guide Dogs – Charity Partner of the Year 2022 – 23

Scotmid Co-operative, Lakes & Dales, Funerals and Semichem are delighted to announce that Guide Dogs are our Charity Partner for 2022-2023.

Guide Dogs works for a world where people with sight loss are never left out of life, for a world where being blind or partially sighted is not what defines you. A world with enough support to make the challenges of sight loss no barrier to fulfilling hopes and dreams.

Although best known for their world-famous assistance dogs, Guide Dogs expanded services include habilitation services to enable thousands more people with sight loss to lead confident, independent, and fulfilling lives.

We are hoping to raise £250,000 which will fund training for 7 new guide dog puppies and 5 habilitation and mobility practitioners. These specialists provide one-to-one support for people with sight loss, helping them to understand and safely navigate the world around them. Guide Dogs and Scotmid will support people with a vision impairment and their families to live the life they choose.
