Slippers for Guide Dogs

5 years ago


On the 28th April the Cummins Mellor gang turned up to work in their best slippers, all to raise money for this month’s chosen charity, Guide Dogs for the Blind.

About the Charity:

The Guide Dogs story started in 1931 with two amazing British pioneers, Muriel Crooke and Rosamund Bond. These remarkable women organised the training of the first four British guide dogs from a humble lock up garage in Wallasey, Merseyside.

Today Guide Dogs are the world’s largest breeder and trainer of working dogs. And thanks to their dedicated staff and volunteers – and vital donations – they have helped over 29,000 people to achieve life-changing independence.

  • The average working life of a guide dog is six to seven years
  • At the end of 2015, there were 4,994 guide dog owners in the UK
  • It costs just under £55,000 to support a guide dog from birth to retirement
