At fixINN we believe in social good and helping those in need. As part of our social responsibility initiative we have chosen to support the Guide Dogs Charity as our chosen charity for this year.
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.
We’ve come a very long way since those early days. Today Guide Dogs is the world's largest breeder and trainer of working dogs. And thanks to our dedicated staff and volunteers – and your vital donations – 36,000 lives have been transformed through a guide dog partnership since 1931.
Want to dig deeper? We’ve got a fascinating history of dogs used as guides for blind people that covers the last 90 years.
We may have a long and fascinating history, but our story is always evolving. Over the coming years we’re looking to increase the number of guide dog partnerships, but we’re also developing a broader range of services that will help more people who are blind and partially sighted to get out and about on their own terms.
If you want to find out more about our vision for the future, the Guide Dogs Strategy 2018-2023 is the place to start. If you think you’d like to help us achieve our goals, you’ll find plenty of options in our 'How you can help' section.
Did you know that every day, 250 people in the UK start to lose their sight?
Guide Dogs believes no one should be left out of life. Our services enable thousands of people with sight loss to lead confident, independent and fulfilling lives. But we know there are many more who could benefit from our support.
We rely on donations to continue our life-changing work. Every pound raised makes a difference to people in the UK living with sight loss.
Please support our charity and help us change more lives by making a donation today.
Sponsor a gorgeous guide dog puppy from just £1 a week, and watch them grow from a six-week-old bundle of fur to a fully-qualified guide dog. It's a great way to support Guide Dogs, and every puppy's journey is unique! After 24 months of training, your puppy will give freedom and independence to someone with sight loss, giving you the chance to sponsor another new recruit!
